Henry transforms house on Nickerson into mural

Posted on April 29th, 2010 by master


Local painter Ryan Henry Ward has left the mark of his trade all around Seattle, literally. Using a style that combines chalk, oil and acrylic paints, Ward is most well known for his bright and whimsical murals that can be seen on abandoned walls and on the sides of homes and businesses around town–you’ll know it’s him by “Henry” stamp painted into the picture.

The side of a house along Nickerson just before the Fremont Bridge has long been a site of Ward’s work, but recently the artist was commissioned to “muralize” the rest of the house, a project finished just earlier this week. The largest part of the new mural showcases a giant goldfish over the east side of the house–a picture that seems to be framed for commuters looking for an entertaining pastime while waiting for the bridge to go down!

Check out more photos of Ward’s work here. Many of Ward’s murals are in our sister neighborhoods, like Ballard, Fremont and Phinney Ridge. Henry works have also been commissioned in less obvious places, like inside local schools and on the walls of neighborhood businesses. Keep your eyes peeled! I personally like to play a little game I call spot the “Henry” while driving around town.

    Spot the “Henry” game isn't much fun when you're a homeowner in the neighborhood. Virtually impossible to sell a house adjacent to that “commissioned” piece.

    did you see that property before? It was a ramshackle dive that looked like a crystal meth den. now it looks fun and playful. maybe your house isnt selling because we’re in a recession. I know someone who had a henry mural in their child’s bedroom and it was the selling point of their house. think a little before you write your words to the public.
