Henry Walsh

Henry Walsh is a London full time freelance artist and designer, who concentrates a large portion of his time on oil painting. The majority of his paintings look at people from different perspectives, namely from birds eye view. This different perspective of large amounts of people allows the viewer to see just how small we are in the world. What is somewhat strange in each of these, is that there is no reference between person and object. For this reason, it is unclear to the viewer whether these people are painted small, or this is the size of these people. There is also a high level of detail on each figure that Henry Walsh paints – each figure is painted with clothes, some carry umbrellas or walking sticks, and others play with children. A small community is created within each painting, without any specific details of individuals.
