ISBN: 9788857247342 Category:


Henri is a free artist. His eclectic, versatile practice has led him to work with sculpture, painting, graphics, mosaics and ceramics, with an authentically exploratory approach. Henri is a living testimony to art understood as inspiration and expressive vitality.

Henri’s style is characterized by a refined expressionism accentuating the physical features of human and animal figures, distorting muscles into tensions, nerves, cheekbones, and fibres, yet always averting grotesque, caricatural and obscene outcomes. This accentuation of physiognomic features, profiles, grinding, nodules, is the most distinctive trait of his production. But his works are never caricatures, farces, or jokes. Henri is an artist taking human and animal features where harmony and physical composure dissolve, fall apart, and become an inner expression, a state of mind, a symbol. Henri does not create figures, but psychic states.
