"Brands have such a profound impact on our daily lives it raises the question if religious faith can compete."
‘In Brands we Trust’ is designed to look on the surface like a classic piece of pop art – juxtaposing Barbie’s face with an image of the Virgin Mary. But the light facade masks a deeper question about consumerism. Whereas Pop Art fetishised consumerism, ‘In Brands we Trust’ challenges it. In March 2016, two people were shot and seriously injured in America when Nike released a new version of its Air Jordan 2 Retro shoes. ‘In Brands, we Trust’ ponders the question ‘have brands become our new religion?’ And if so, are they encouraging division and extremism?
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”.

Your Framing Options
Box framing is provided with all our online framing, creating a distance between the glass and your artwork, so no risk of ink transfer to the pane. it's the perfect, gallery grade choice for limited edition prints or original artworks.
Shadow float mounting is an option at our website, to give the appearance of an artwork floating within the frame. The mount – an archival foam core – creates depth too, by casting a shadow beneath the artwork. We highly recommend using a float mount when framing artwork with deckled (hand-torn) edges.
As always, all our materials are sustainable and archival to keep your artwork in mint condition and perfectly presented. Simply choose from our white or black float framing options, before adding to basket.
Glazing all our framing orders are shipped with glass. We take great care with packaging to protect your artwork.
Alternatively, for added piece of mind, we've the option of gallery grade cast acrylic, offering superb clarity and protection.
