Aaron F. Henderson

Visual Artist Aaron F. Henderson produces a remarkable body of art, which brings to life the brilliantly vibrant colors that are so much a part of African and African American culture. His ambition is to capture the powerful, spiritual and expressive feelings of his themes and to transfer them into passionate images for his viewers. Aaron has been painting for more than 40 years and has dedicated much of his life to studying and creating art

He is a narrative artist and when viewing his work, one often sees classic “life stories” unfolding in the faces and the movements of his subjects. His goal is to show his audiences a compelling interpretation of his narratives. This is accomplished through Aaron’s exquisite use of color to create works of art, which convey emotions, harmony and rhythm. Aaron is fully aware that he has been blessed by God with an extraordinary talent. His objective is to obtain knowledge, and use his God-given talent to reflect all of his experiences, dreams and visions through his work. Most recently his work has been featured on HGTV’s ‘Ground Breakers’ and acquired by the permanent collection of the Franklin G. Burroughs – Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. He earned a B.S.E.E. (Electrical Engineering) degree from Tuskegee University in 1971
