There are no limits to what static visuals can achieve. Henry Hu’s personal approach of utilizing digital tools creates a variety of styles that can be seen across all collections matching their subject matters. Each individual collection usually consists of multiple pieces, often in the same style, grouped by specific themes, concepts or stories. 20 years of living, some of Hu’s work touch upon life itself, while others explore on subjects that interest him personally. Most of his works are intentional, evolving over time. He doesn’t have specific ways for audiences to view them, it is what it is. Each person’s feelings and opinions will be polarized and I am totally happy with that. You can view his work here. Henryhhu.com
