"BIG H" HENRY CHAN
While studying Graphics Design in College and Fine Art in University as an artist Henry was influenced by Pop / Graffiti and Traditional Fine art and by artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Henri Matise, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Banksy who’s use of imagery and sometimes vibrant colours reminded him of his youth.
Henry's art is mainly a mixture of graffiti and pop art with popular culture often his subject matter and his art often satirising current issues in society such as celebrity culture, power and commercialism.
With his art Henry wants to arouse the senses and stir the spirit and wants his art to visually stimulate the observer through strong images, colour, patterns and words.
Henry often enjoys the look and feel of tight and accurate geometric lines mixed with strong vibrant colours and bold patterns often surrounding a central figure from the world of popular culture.
