Bright color and joyous imagination characterize the paintings of Henry Sides. His paintings are inhabited by all manner of animal, fish and fowl busily involved with the activities that are usually the concerns of mankind. Some dressed in human attire, these wonderfully endearing characters evoke a smile every time. As the figurative inventions arise from his unconscious so do the color filled landscapes that Henry paints in glowing primary and secondary hues. It is no wonder then that the artist has quite a following among adults as well as children.
Henry’s paintings can be found in collections in New York City; Australia; Berlin, Germany; San Francisco and Los Angeles, and on the East coast of the United States. The Artist has participated in many exhibitions throughout the United States from the early 1970’s to the present.
