Born in Australia, Heath has spent much of his life in England; first in London and now in the market town of Saffron Walden in Essex where he has his studio.
The first part of Kane’s career was as a successful designer and art director for London ad agencies, and a strong sense of graphic structure still sits at the heart of his art. He specialises in simple, iconic and memorable pieces that have the ability to tell stories and are linked to a larger narrative.
One of his breakthrough collections was Rich Enough To Be Batman, the superimposing of Batman’s mask on the Queen’s face, Heath Kane’s response to what he calls “the increasing disparity in wealth that I was seeing.”
