About Heath Kane

I have always been fascinated by the world around me: particularly where life, art and storytelling collide. After decades of working in advertising and design it dawned on me that there was more to life than selling people shit they don’t need.

Having worked with clients in the luxury goods market for quite a while, I found it hard to understand how some individuals had more wealth than entire countries. And so, I created Rich Enough to be Batman. I knew then that I wanted any art I made to be topical, political and to challenge the conventions of our lifestyles and the world we live in today.

I have always made art in response to what I see happening in the world. Each of my collections explores a different political or social narrative. I want people to look at my art and talk about the issues we face, both individually and as a community.

When politics seems to be moving backwards (and while right wing governments continue to be in power) we need to be more active than ever in moving forwards. In creating art, I now have a voice that can help to bring about change. And, through buying my art perhaps you can join in that choir.

I will continue to create more art that brings awareness to the societal rifts that politics creates. I hope to ridicule these divisions whilst trying to create more tolerance and understanding for each other.

Let’s work together in making the world better. Not just for ourselves, but for everyone.
