About the Artist


 Harry Spilker is a 25-year old young man with Down syndrome whose artistic medium is photography.  He captures images with his iPad or cell phone, often using special effects.  He then further manipulates the colors and other aspects of the pictures to create an artistic effect, using various apps on his devices.   Harry uses color to evoke a mood in his photographs.   He especially likes to photograph everyday objects and scenes and then create boldly colored abstract pieces that evoke an emotional response.

    Last night I was in Musser Park at Lancaster First Friday.  We had a little sprinkle of rain, but not enough to spoil the festivities.  Met some really nice people and had an enjoyable evening.
