    Harsh Patel: Works

Harsh Patel merges fine art and graphic design with potent results

Posted by James Cartwright,

It would be inaccurate to refer to Harsh Patel as a graphic designer. While he deals primarily in printed matter and the reproduction of multiples and uses the tools of the designer to create his work – typography, grid systems and iconic vector graphics all feature heavily throughout his portfolio – his motivations are those of an artist and the bulk of his output is not employed commercially.

Harsh spends his time producing handmade publications that explore music, poetry and art using a distinct and personal vernacular of religious and political iconography. Naturally the guys at Nieves identified his talents before anyone else got wind of them and produced a zine of his work in 2011. It sold out pretty quickly, which says all you need to know about the quality of Harsh’s output.
