Clyde Henry (b. 1986) is a multidisciplinary artist from Yeadon, Pa. Henry works on paper, ceramic, wood, music, and textile. With a distinctive mark-making process that revolves around portraits of animals and figures (particularly images of his family), Henry skillfully translates his aesthetic to any material he works with, resulting in vibrant compositions filled with energy in line. He has a passion for textile arts as well, weaving in workshops out of Ready to Hand Studio in South Philadelphia and block printing fabric with visiting artists from Tharangini Studio.
Henry’s work has been exhibited at the Woodmere Museum (Philadelphia, PA.), Outsider Art Fair (New York, NY), ArtYard (Frenchtown, NJ), Pressure Club (Philadelphia, PA), Spillway Collective (Philadelphia, PA), and The Pingle Building (St. Louis, MO). Henry had his first solo exhibition (Tigers Blue Jays Trees / Jungles Branches / Green Leaves) in Spring 2022 at Tiger Strikes Asteroid in Philadelphia, and is part of the collection in the (forthcoming) YOWIE Boutique Hotel in South Philadelphia.
