Heath Kane is an Australian artist, based in the UK. Heath is synonymous with creating bold, striking, often lurid art. He embeds subtle, subversive themes that encourage a political or social conversation. Heath’s approach to art has always been driven by his background in design thinking; combined with his passion for semiotics and storytelling. He focuses on creating simple, iconic and memorable pieces.
Heath has collaborated with Wired Magazine and Saatchi Art, and has partnered with Penguin Books to create the last published covers of George Orwell’s most famous books. Heath exhibits his work in solo shows all around the globe, and his originals and prints frequently appear in leading galleries worldwide.
Self taught artist (previously studied animation and graphic design)
Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
This newly launched collection of Rich Enough to be Batman serves as a conversation about wealth and social contribution. In a world where wealth has become even more concentrated into the hands of the ultra-elite, has there ever been a bigger need to do good with money?
