About Henderson Cisz

International Acclaim

Best-selling contemporary cityscape artist Henderson Cisz, has established an international reputation as one of the finest artists of his generation.

His magnificent cityscapes have won him recognition from the Fine Art Trade Guild, first as Best New Artist and a year later as Artist of the Year.

Henderson has also won the coveted John Soloman Trophy, annually awarded to the artist judged to have made the greatest impact on the art market.


Henderson was born in Brazil in 1960 and showed artistic promise from an early age. However, he always saw painting as more of a hobby and entered the banking profession when he left school.

At 26, after realising that art meant more to him than banking, Cisz moved to London to study painting. He managed to turn his passion into his profession and stayed in London, painting full time in his studio.


As evident in his work, Henderson is a true city dweller and many of his inspirational works feature scenes from the world’s most beautiful cities. His love of travel, and painting the drama and diversity of urban life, have seen Cisz form intense relationships with many cities.

However it wasn’t Venice, New York or even Paris that he decided to make his home, but London. Perhaps that decision had something to do with his love of rain…

“I love the effect that weather has on the urban landscape and must confess to a particular fondness for the rain! Not only does it cast interesting shadows and reflections on the slick sidewalks, but it also dictates the stance of the figures. Their slightly defensive postures and hunched shoulders lend a very specific, and to my mind curiously engaging, mood to the overall scene.”


Henderson’s trademark palette uses cool, soft tones to create atmosphere and emotion in each of his paintings. His vibrant cityscapes have made him one of the most highly regarded contemporary artists.

When not travelling, Henderson spends the majority of his day painting. His eldest son accompanies him to the studio (in West London near the Thames) where he’s learning painting techniques and the art of studio management.
