Adrian Henri

1932 (Birkenhead) / 2000 (Liverpool)
Artist's webSite

Student at Richard Hamilton in the early 1950s, Adrian Henri (1932-2000) worked in the broad groove linking music, poetry and visual practice, whose reunion is exalted in his 1964 painting The Entry of Christ into Liverpool, which places the Beatles at the top of his pantheon. It was also on the stage, notably with the founding of the rock poetry group Liverpool Scene (1967-70), that his art, resolutely anchored in urban life, unfolded.
