About Harry Chandler

Harry works primarily in mixed media: photography, acrylics, and electronics, primarily exploring themes of Southern California icons with unique techniques and very contemporary portrayals. 

His art training started at Phillips Academy, Andover, MA, then continued at Stanford University, and at UCLA Graduate School of Film and Television.  Prior to his career as an artist, Chandler worked as a television executive,  an independent film producer, and a tech executive.  He is a  founding contributor to Los Angeles MOCA, a former member of the Getty Museum Photo Council and LACMA LENS. He has had three solo museum shows. 

 A few years ago, Chandler moved into a big new studio in DTLA and in 2021, opened a second studio at the Channel Islands Harbor in Ventura.  He invites you to contact him for a studio visit, in person or via Zoom.
