Henry Gonnet is a British/French artist currently based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK.

Gonnet has exhibited widely throughout England - from as far North as BATLIC 39 in Newcastle, to as far South as the Leadenhall Building in London. In 2018 he was shortlisted for the Aon Community Art Award and co-directed the show that won Free Range art week's award for Best Collective. He was also shortlisted for the People's Choice Award at Sunny Bank Mills Gallery's "Ones 2 Watch" exhibition in 2017.

Gonnet's artworks are an exploration of binary ideas; his work sits at the intersection between the physical and digital worlds, navigating the space between premeditative decision-making and chance. Through a process he refers to as "generative score writing" Gonnet expresses his ruminations on ontology, causality, and aesthetics.

Gonnet's practice encompasses generative computer art, drawing, sound, installation, and performance.
