THE CULTURAL DEVOLUTION
We all want to believe that we can 'make the world better again' rather than having to put up with the continual amount of shit at the moment. Looking around, we're seeing the rise of autocratic regimes, right-wing policies eating away at democracy, tax relief for the rich, the dismantling of social care reforms and a whole plethora of other shites - but who actually voted for this?
Perhaps it's time for a real revolution. Otherwise, we'll find ourselves plunged even deeper into cultural devolution.
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”.
