From India To New York And Back With Artist Heath Newman

I don’t know how I first came across Heath Newman’s work, but I remember the feeling. It was a visceral reaction; something in his colour palettes, naive scrawls and deep references to mythology struck a chord. After featuring him in a piece earlier this year we emailed back and forth to check in with each other every so often. Even through the Internet, Heath’s presence is grounding and calm.

Ahead of opening his first solo show tonight, ‘Somnium’ with his new gallery Otomys, I asked the artist, Bonsai-enthusiast, and student of Chinese medicine (…but that’s another story) to delve a deeper into his practice.
