Heath Kane

Echoing his mother words "somewhere I must have 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 distil subtle but often subversive themes.

"My approach to art is responsive. I respond to what I see and feel. Rich Enough To Be Batman was a response to the disparities of wealth I was seeing. It also was based on a core belief of mine – that good art should also create a smile in people’s minds. It seemed to strike a chord and was and continues to be very successful"
