Harvey Daniels (1936 - 2013) studied at Willesden School of Art (1951-56), the Slade (1956-58) and Brighton College of Art (1958-59). In 1963 Harvey returned to Brighton College, initially as a printmaking technician and from 1970 as Principal Lecturer in Printmaking, running the Printmaking department until his retirement in 1988. 

A founding member of the Printmakers Council, he also remained an exhibiting member of The London Group throughout his life. Harvey regularly exhibited worldwide, including exhibitions in Norway, Germany and the United States. His first solo show was held in New York in 1963, and during his lifetime he had over 56 solo exhibitions. Harvey's work is included in many prestigious public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. 

Harvey has written or co-written four educational books on printmaking, and art historians and critics who have written about him include Larry Berryman, Professor Michael Tucker and Professor Norbert Lynton. 

'The most obvious quality of Harvey Daniels' paintings is their brilliance. The most brilliant quality of his paintings is their obviousness... There is a variety of tone and action in Daniels' images. They are far from bland, and familiarity with them brings an enhanced sense of visual drama. Up front though it all is, there are harsh tones as well as sweet, elbows as well as caresses. They are polished but far from polite. The modern, urban motifs disport themselves with rustic or primitive vigour... The message of it all is the optimistic one of "community, freedom, equality and abundance".' 

- Professor Norbert Lynton writing in 1987
