Harry Spilker

February 1 - February 28

Harry Spilker with a camera

Harry has always been a self-motivated artist, drawing with markers, colored pencils, and other media by himself as a child. When he was in high school, at Camp Hill, he borrowed his dad’s cell phone and stepped out into the courtyard to take pictures. After that, he began taking photos regularly, and his art teacher, April Tichenor, nurtured his interest in painting and photography.

How does your medium inform your viewpoint? What do you like most about your medium?

I like to photograph nature and the environment around the community. I especially like taking pictures of trees and clouds and the Susquehanna River in all different lights. I take lots of pictures of my dad. I like to use different apps on my iPhone to mix colors and change the shape and size of the images. I think my photographs make a statement about how I see the world.

Who or what have been your artistic inspirations?

I’m a big fan of Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol.

Do you have a favorite piece in your portfolio?

Ocean Morning.

What would be your advice to artists just starting out in your medium?

Take every opportunity to get out and take photos. Post your work on social media, and start a website.
