Liverpool-based Adrian Henri (1932-2000) trained as a painter under Richard Hamilton and Victor Pasmore. His early Pop Art sensibility translated into urban imagery, collages and hyperrealist paintings. He was also a pioneer of happenings in the UK, setting up the first Event in Liverpool in 1962, and authoring a landmark publication on environments and happenings, 'Total Art', in 1974. As a poet, Henri came to prominence alongside Roger McGough and Brian Patten with the groundbreaking Penguin anthology 'The Mersey Sound' (1967), and he remains best known as a writer of love poetry, charting chance encounters, everyday enchantments, false starts, reluctant separations.
Love is feeling cold in the back of vans
Love is a fan club with only two fans
Love is walking holding paintstained hands
This limited edition print captures the immediacy and the vitality of one of Henri’s most emblematic images.
