Artist Steven Harrington has a signature psychedelic-pop aesthetic, creating playful and always far out work while partnering with the biggest names in fashion, media and technology. A longtime California resident, Harrington is well-acquainted with the state’s gorgeous coastline, connecting with the outdoors during retreats to Big Sur. While chatting with Keith Eshleman, Co-founder of conservation group Parks Project, the artist discovered they both consider this special portion of the coast their “happy place,” and a collaboration was born.
Commissioned to create a collection of exclusive art to support the area, Harrington says his oil-on-canvas designs “reflect the Big Sur experience as a whole. From the delicious food to the curvy roads to the wild escapists and raw beauty, Big Sur does have it all.” Colorful and certifiably trippy, his pieces are available as limited edition T-shirts on the Parks Project website with a portion of sales funding art programs at Henry Miller Library Arts Center inside the Big Sur National Park.
