About
Henny Valentino                  

Henny Valentino (b. Amsterdam, 1992) MFA graduate from Central Saint Martins (2020) is a multidisciplinary artist and graphic designer,  working between Amsterdam and London.

Born and raised in Amsterdam, Henny Valentino investigates representations of introversion and how introverts manoeuvre in societies geared around extroverts. He create places that function as safe havens where solitude meets the external world, using installation, video and sound. Inspired by automotive and domestic landscapes, seeing them as an extension of the self. Personalised spaces guarded by fragile glass windows, glaring in the beaming sun.
