Dates of existence


Henry was born in Bath in 1987. After studying at the University of Gloucestershire and Wimbledon School of Art (2007-2010), Henry graduated with a 1st class Honours degree and was the joint winner of the final years Landmark Sculpture Prize. He went on to participate in a number of group shows in London galleries. On the strength of his degree show he was invited to exhibit in the Anticipation Exhibition, showcasing the best of London’s graduates and post graduates, which was selected by Kay Saatchi. Shortly after, he became the recipient of Jupiter Artland’s 2010 summer residency, which had been open to all graduates from the colleges of The University of the Arts, London that year. As a result, Jupiter Artland commissioned an artwork for their permanent collection. Hare Hill was installed in the summer of 2012.

Henry has since been involved in a long term project at Rubislaw quarry in Aberdeen, making works in response to Europe’s largest manmade hole, where plans are ongoing to create a heritage centre to celebrate the history of granite in the city. Some of this work, including ‘The depth of time’ was shown in Spinach in Islington in 2014 - 2015. He currently lives and works from his studio in Windsor, and was elected to the Royal British Society of Sculptors
