About the Artist

Heath Wae (b.1989, Australia) is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice depicts fragments of still life, mythology, strokes, scrawls and colour fields. Newman traveled intrepidly throughout Asia, settling in India for two years before moving to New York for another year. Amidst these contrasting experiences, Newman found inspiration in chaos, calmness, humanity and nature while continuing to explore his gentle practice. Inspired by the art of The Southern School in China and Japan and the art of making Bonsai, Newman draws on the concept of Literati: the scrawl of the drunken monk. Literati is a culture of art notably concerned with ink painting, splashes, calligraphic scrawls and minimalistic plant styling (bonsai). This culture of painting and the creation of bonsai were deep in philosophical subtext concerning the art of harmonious involvement with nature. Heath lives and works in Melbourne, Australia.
