The Army experience can also be considered as the source of my cartographic ‘painting style’ which maps the ground between painting, photography and information. Doug Henders
Born in Chicago in 1957, Doug Henders graduated with a BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art 1983. Based in Germany, as a cartographer, he acquired the basic skills that would later influence his highly individualistic artistic style.
As a painter, he approaches his canvases utilizing concepts and technical skills, interfaced with screens and windows, that reveal his mapmaking skills as applied to his views of contemporary society.
Doug Henders currently resides in NYC and has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions.
