Theodore Harris was born in 1966 in New York City and raised in Philadelphia, PA. He has worked with the Philadelphia Anti-Graffiti Network and the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program. He defines himself as a “confrontational collagist, engaged in visual warfare, decolonizing the mind through collage.” His collages weave together images and words from various sources, including popular advertisements, military journals, and literary works, creating intertextual artworks that call upon viewers’ knowledge and recognition of images, symbols and words. The artwork title, The Price of the Ticket, refers to James Baldwin’s famous collection of essays about African American experience.
