John henry is one of the most recognized American sculptors working today. His art, much of it monumental in scale, graces public and private spaces across the world. I met John in 1982 in Chicago and have followed his career since. A person cannot help but like this guy — he has a big, charming manner that draws one in, much like his big, beautiful sculpture that has one staring up at the sky. Big, complex structures that somehow seem light and effortless.
