Don Harger is an American painter whose non-objective abstract paintings inform the genre through his disciplined use of paint and color. For Don, “the actual work of making a painting is arduous.” The process starts when he cleans his own oils and creates his paints and colors. His paints are applied thickly in broad swaths of pure color or vigorous compositions of rhythmic and exuberant patterns.
Don is a self-employed artist, painter, and maker. He was born in Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, and educated at the Southern California Institute of Architecture. His creative journey began with a love of sculpture and eventually transitioned into a love of painting.
