John Henry

b. 1943

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.
