About Denholm Berry

Milan-based British artist Denholm Berry approaches portraiture with an innovative and unconventional methodology.
Blending psychological spaces with expressive physicality, the figures presented in the works are at once anonymous and inviting – emotions and identities are open to the viewer’s interpretation. “My hope is that, by filtering concepts in this unusual way, my obscurations will become paradoxically revealing.” Denholm’s unique artworks have been featured in many Saatchi Art collections and are held in private collections worldwide.
His distinctive paintings make regular appearances on various major Instagram feeds, and have been seen and admired by millions of people online.
