Biog

HenryG cut his artistic teeth during the Pop Art era and was heavily influenced by Roy Lichtenstein, Saul Bass and the artists and designers of the American Push Pin studio who included Milton Glaser and Seymour Chwast. He became disenchanted with the new wave of Young British Artists after nearly being knocked down by Grayson Perry’s customised motorbike while returning through Hoxton after an arts market in Spitalfields. During his abstract period his work was once reviewed as being ‘minimal art minus’. At this point he realised that he was taking his life and art too seriously so he added influences from rave culture to his repertoire. His use of colour and graphics create a mesmerising contrast somewhere between calm and calamity. He has described being influenced by Lichtenstein as a bit ‘pipe and carpet slippers’ compared to the likes of Richard Rauschenberg and famously said ‘If life was butter we’d all be in a right mess’.
