Atom Gallery presents a new collection of hand finished prints from UK-based street artist and printmaker Heath Kane

About

"Napoleon said ‘history is written by the winners’. He might also have said ‘And painted for the rich’. The result is a gross distortion of our past.

“Portrait of Heroes” is Heath’s latest collection inspired by portraits painted by the Old Masters that reveals how classical art was often a means for wealthy individuals to portray their ultra ego. It playfully suggests that the classical portrait artist was the Photoshop and Instagram filter of their time.

Today we all have the ability to take selfies and live our lives through social media. But how much of what we share is real and how much are we all trying to hero-ise our lives?”
