Portraits of Heroes
by Heath Kane

Echoing his mother words "somewhere I must gone wrong raising you", Heath has not been one to stay on the straight and narrow path. With an insatiable curiosity for oddities and irregularities in life, Heath’s eyes are always open finding new things.

Born in Australia, Heath quickly took flight to explore the world in his early 20’s. During that time has been working at the forefront of design, working for many of the world’s leading advertising and branding agencies.

Now turning his attention back to art, his debut collection draws inspiration from his commercial art background and origins of urban art – a blend of design and art. His approach follows the practice of design thinking, with a focus on creating simple, iconic and memorable pieces that have the ability to tell stories and are linked to a larger narrative. Within the, often lurid colour, artwork he tries to distill subtle but often subversive themes.

 “The important thing for me is not just what it looks like and feels like, it is what it makes you think”. HK

This spring Mary is delighted to have Heath show solo for the first time in Sheffield, a host of new & old original canvases as well as exclusive editions. A Private View will be held on the evening of Thursday 7 March (limited spaces). All artworks will be available to purchase on the night, for any exclusive pre-sale information please contact events@99mary.st.
