Henderson Cisz, 1960 | Cityscape painter

Henderson Cisz is a Brazilian painter** known for his inspirational paintings that feature scenes from the world’s most beautiful cities - London, New York, Paris and Venice.
Henderson Cisz was born in Brazil and grew up in a small village in Parana State.
Cisz had talent from a very young age, but considered it only a hobby. By the time he finished school, he entered a position as a banker.

Although Cisz’s talent for painting was apparent from an early age he never considered pursuing a career as an artist. Instead, he entered the banking profession and continued to enjoy painting as a hobby.
In the mid 1980’s Cisz realized that art was more to him than just a hobby and in 1986, he moved to London to study painting. Since then, Henderson has traveled through Europe, Australia and South America.

Henderson Cisz’s love of travel has informed his artwork and his paintings and limited edition prints utilise cool, soft tones to convey the atmosphere of each place.
Henderson’s most notable works include Beach Chairs (from his series of beach themed paintings), L’Arc de Triomphe and The Embankment Polychrome; he regularly exhibits in London galleries and at international art fairs.

As he states:
"I love the effect that weather has on the urban landscape and must confess to a particular fondness for the rain! Not only does it cast interesting shadows and reflections on the slick sidewalks, but it also dictates the stance of the figures. Their slightly defensive postures and hunched shoulders lend a very specific, and to my mind curiously engaging, mood to the overall scene".
