Work and reception[edit]

Panthera Tigris by Henry Gunderson (2009)

His work has been likened to Georges Braque and Henry Darger.[2] He has also been praised for his insight into "the clash between man and nature and the animalistic tendencies innate in humans."[3] Having had his first solo show at Fecal Face Dot Gallery in San Francisco at the age of 19, he's been called a child prodigy.[3]

A selection of Gunderson’s exhibitions in the last two years include those at Show and Tell Gallery in Toronto, Nudashank in Baltimore and White Walls in San Francisco. In 2010 he was chosen for Survey Select at Wonderbread Factory in San Diego, an exhibition that highlights recent developments in narrative painting.[4]
