Bio

Joha Harrison

 

Joha Harrison was born in Baton Rouge Louisiana, moved to Georgia at 17, and has been in Sacramento California for 11 years now. He has two sons that enjoy the arts just as much as does. Starting in the arts in elementary school, he eventually submitted shoe designs to Nike while in the 5th grade. Art didn't play a role in his life again until the 11th grade when he started with photography. Taking photos of everything he wanted to remember; from there, love for the art blossomed. Being a photographer for 20 years allows for a bit of confidence in the craft, but documenting history is a lifelong journey. Filmmaking is the newest of his current endeavors, its an extension of photography. It takes a still photo and allows it to breathe. His painting life or painting persona delves into a bit of the unknown. When painting, he translates thoughts, feelings, emotions, memories, and realms into painted expressions. The process of painting is a journey from the first message down to the signature. Joha combines these artforms along with film editing to create an artistic atmosphere that's available everywhere he goes.
