About Robin Henry:
As a musician, printmaker, and illustrator of French and Anishinaabe background, London-based artist Robin Henry explores storytelling in many forms. With musical projects like Willow Switch and A Ghost, Robin’s work focuses on identity politics and relationship to land, and also nurtures an inquisitiveness about the folkloric roots of songs – a passion for connecting with the people and places embodied in old ballads and shanties.
Robin is the founder of screen printing enterprise, Antler River Press. They are also a mentor with Rezonance Printing, an award-winning mentorship program focused on printing as a means of cultural connection and economic sovereignty for Indigenous artists. Alongside Rezonance founder, artist and activist Adam Sturgeon (Status/Non-Status, Out of Sound Records), Robin has been involved in Orange Shirt Day as a designer, printer, mentor, educator, and supporter of residential school survivors.
