Keaton Henson is a musician, writer and visual artist living in London. Already a cult hero, he has released critically acclaimed albums as well as books and sold out art shows around the world.

 

Keaton’s diverse visual output, which predominantly consists of drawing, painting and sculpture, is a unique mix of the reflective, the melancholic and the humorous, exposing his enormous talent both as a draughtsman and as a visionary. Often using a diaristic narrative, his work has been described as 'uncomfortably honest'. He tells stories of lost love, reclusiveness and deep-seated anxiety, whilst also conjuring dreamlike fantastic worlds where the mundane English suburbs hide mystical things unseen.

 

Keaton’s first major solo exhibition Hithermost took place in London in January 2013, which sold out. His work has also been shown in a number of group exhibitions and art fairs including Comics Unmasked: Art and Anarchy in the UK (British Museum, 2 May – 19 August 2014), Art Social ’14, a four day arts festival curated and hosted by not-for-profit members club The House of St Barnabas (31st July – 3rd August 2014), and the Art13 art fair in London’s Olympia.

 

2015 saw the release of Keaton’s new illustrated collection of poetry entitled Idiot Verse (Eyewear Publishing), which followed his critically-acclaimed graphic novel Gloaming (POCKO), which was inspired by British suburbia and Japanese folklore.

 

Keaton’s artwork resides in many notable art collections around the world, including a considerable celebrity following.
