Nigel Henri

Born in: 1967


Nigel Henri was born in 1967 in Mahé in the Seychelles. Where he still lives with his family. He was a student at the Seychelles Polytechnic School and in 1989 at Sussex University in Brighton in England.

Nigel Henri is the first Seychellois to have won the International Biennale; he is also the founder of the Visual Arts association and co-founder of CENAC (1999), a professional organisation for the artists in the Seychelles.

He mostly works with acrylic painting, ink, and pastels but uses unusual techniques with materials (like glue or cover paste) or tools (like scrapers, toothbrushes, rolls of different sizes and even pieces of wood). He paints on canvas but also on relief wallpaper and glass fiber.

There are no preliminaries sketches; it is directly the work of art. The paints extend around the borders in order that even without a frame the work of art is visible from any point of view. His name is associated to art. The sea, in particular the seabed and the fishes are his special field for this diving fan. In 2013 Nigel Henri celebrated his 30 years of career. He is today one of the most famous and emblematic painter of the Seychelles, whose international reputation continues to grow.

Gazprom, the giant Russian of the energy sector has recently ordered him 80 canvases. It is surely another proof of the recognition of his work. Known in more than twenty countries worldwide, Nigel Henri won many prizes over his career.
