Harmon is a proponent of non-object oriented art. Utilizing architectural scale painting and new media/web based content in coordination with public performance, graffiti style ad bombing, and web-based social engineering.
Harmon paints dominantly on an architectural scale, encompassing multistory building facades, sidewalks and street surfaces which he has referred to as “site-specific paint installations.” Visually his work is based in gestural abstracted forms utilizing intensely vibrant colors to alter the public perception of both the architecture and its contextual environment
