David Henty is now considered the best copyist artist in the world today. His work is meticulously and lovingly recreated to the finest detail, having honed his craft over 25 years to now master the techniques and nuances of some of historys most iconic artists, his work has fooled scientists and art critics alike, being practically indiscernible from originals of such artworks by Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso, LS Lowry, Caravaggio, Leonardo Da Vinci, Vincent Van Gogh, Norman Rockwell, Chaim Sautine, Carel Fabrituius, Claude Monet, Jean Michel Basquiat, Ewin Landseer, Walter Sickert, Rene Magritte, David Shepherd, John Singer Sargent, Gabriel Rossetti, and the list goes on.
With a strong and growing gallery presence, and a growing list of private collector, Davids work is in high demand, and with a discerning repertoire, a long list of projects and commissions are now on the table from a Mediterranean tour, prospective shows in the United States, scheduled shows in Dubai, UAE and beyond.

Thursday 17th October - The Hidden View, Artizan Gallery, 7 Lucius Street, Torquay
Three accomplished Devon artists, Rosemary Bonney, Ann Chester King and Diana Booth, come together to show their latest work of contrasting, harmonising and distinctive styles featuring the Devon landscape. Painting together for a number of years and the three have become close friends through their shared passion for the natural world. Though each has exhibited widely, this exhibition will uniquely be the first time they have brought their work together in a single show.
All drawn in their individual ways to the secluded, often unseen and wilder areas of the Devon landscape, works capture views across barren and beautiful moorland or to the rocky shorelines of the dramatic coast and the sea beyond. Through their shared passion for nature and these hidden landscapes, the exhibition promises to offer a harmonious collection of works that nonetheless respond to the natural world in a diverse contemporary and painterly manner.
