This biography from the Archives of AskART:

James V. Harvey was born in 1929 in Toronto, Canada and pursued his artistic education at the Art Institute of Chicago where he received his B.F.A. in 1951.  He was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to Egypt, 1953-54. 

Harvey then moved to New York City where he worked as a commercial artist by day (he designed the original Brillo box made famous by Andy Warhol) and an abstract painter by night.  Harvey quickly began to exhibit and in a New York Times review (Brian O'Doherty-1961) of a show at Graham Gallery, he was called "?the richest young talent to flex his action-painting muscles for some time". 

Harvey's life was tragically cut short by cancer and he died in New York City in 1965.
