No one knows who he is and his galleries are the streets, he never sells his art but auctioneers literally sell the walls his work is painted on with people left to sort out removal themselves. He has been known to paint his art on the doors of places in need of money and his legend is world known, and not all of it with love...Read More

Basically a stunning Hallmark card movie And people are raving about Harris...Read More
