Heny Steinberg is a Mexican artist who received a degree in graphic design from Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes y Literatura (National Institute of Fine Arts and Literature) in Mexico City. Her unique artistic style was developed while studying under Mexican Expressionist painter Eduardo Cohen from 1984-85.
Steinberg's paintings are arranged in a grid or lattice system, which is then deconstructed and re-imagined. Her abstract shapes transcend their two-dimensional representation and have meaning beyond appearance. She draws inspiration from American Abstract Expressionists like Helen Frankenthaler but also incorporates a clear Mexican Cubist influence into her work. Steinberg's color palette is both unique and soft, while also being dynamic, emotional, and playful. Her process involves starting with concrete images and references, but over time she decontextualizes them to create something new and unique.
Steinberg's artworks have been exhibited extensively in Mexico, and she has gained recognition internationally with exhibitions in countries such as the Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium.
