About Justin Harris

During my late teenage years it was my misfortune to find myself trapped as one of the “human shield” in Kuwait during the 1990 Gulf War. At that time I frequently watched Peter Greenaway's The Draughtsman’s Contact which inspired me to take up pencil and paper as a way to pass the hours. After my release the inspiration held and I went on to graduate from Norwich School of Art with a BA hons in Visual Studies. Drawing formed a major part of my everyday working practice. Until now I have taken a hiatus from exhibiting, but drawing has remained a vital tool for me to contemplate, and understand, the world around me.
