Ryan Henry Ward, who signs his work simply as “Henry”, is an American artist who has been described as "Seattle's most prolific muralist." Publicly active as an artist only since 2008, by the close of 2014, he had painted over 180 murals on surfaces such as buildings exteriors, school interiors, garages, and even vehicles, primarily in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. By his own count, he had sold over 2000 canvases.
Although he lived in a bus during his early career as a Seattle artist, Henry now lives on a boat and maintains a studio in the Ballard neighborhood. In contrast to many other artists on Seattle's "street artist" scene, Ward always executes his public pieces with the permission of the property owner. Ryan Henry Ward's vision of creating primitive images with a dream-like, surreal quality has come to fruition. He wants the natural rawness of the painting process to show through his balanced, bright, and whimsical work.
