Layaway Days: Art collecting on a Budget
Haris Nukem is a talent! He is a British photographer, a director, and likely wears many more hats, that I have yet to discover. I first became aware of Haris when one of his portraits appeared on the cover of ‘Beautiful Bizarre Magazine’ in September 2015. I was in awe of this photograph. The colors were electric. The model’s violet lips, matched the braces on her teeth. Her dark eye makeup contrasted with her aqua eyes, causing an explosion of color. Haris uses alternative models whose enigmatic qualities are exacerbated by the tattoos and piercings, covering their bodies. He has an impressive ability to create a scene that the viewer longs to take part in. After reviewing his images, I immediately went to his shop and ordered a few prints.
Harris produces signed editions of his photographs. His shop contains several images, which are available in two sizes. The sizes are approximately 21cm x 30cm (34.99 GBP) and 30cm x 42cm (54.99 GBP). His work depicts strong and sexy men and women, who don’t give a fuck. They are London. They are the party. They are Nukem.
