"BIG H" HENRY CHAN
Whilst studying Graphics Design in College and Fine Art at University BIG H 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, whose use of imagery and sometimes vibrant colours reminded him of his youth.
BIG H’s art is mainly a mixture of graffiti and pop art with popular culture his subject matter. His art often satirises current issues in society such as celebrity culture, power and commercialism.
With his art he wants to arouse the senses and stir the spirit and to visually stimulate the observer through strong images, colour, patterns and words.
He often enjoys the look and feel of tight and accurate geometric lines mixed with strong vibrant colours and bold patterns surrounding a central figure from the world of popular culture.
In April 2022, BIG H wowed the audience with his first solo exhibition, almost selling out in the first week. His new series of works concentrates on iconic graffiti emblems, mixing them with his own unique take on popular culture. In one painting, a Storm Trouper shelters under a pink umbrella whilst in another painting Mickey Mouse and Ronald McDonald hold hands with a Banksy-eque Monkey.
BIG H graduate in 2022 with a MA in Fine Art. His original paintings are in private collections within the UK, Europe, the USA and Canada.
In the fall of 2022, BIG H is launching his first Limited Edition Print Collection in association with Comme Ca Art Dealers.
