An Atlanta native, Alex Brewer (better known as HENSE) has been working as a visual artist for almost two decades. His free-form paintings and public mural installations incorporate a combination of lines, shapes and organic forms. His work has been described and fluid and playful, and as an explosion of pastels.
HENSE launched his career in the 1990s painting walls and writing graffiti in and around Atlanta. By 1999, he had achieved what is known as “all city status,” because his work could be found in almost every neighborhood in Atlanta. In addition, HENSE has produced exterior works across the U.S, and abroad in Spain, France, Japan, Taiwan and Mexico.
As part of his continuing efforts to work amidst the urban landscape, HENSE has adopted a variety of innovative techniques, realizing art in public spaces by means of print-making, painting, and art installations.
