Henry Orenstein
(1918 - 2008)

Henry Orenstein was a Canadian Artist and animator. born in Midland, Ontario in 1918. Orenstein served in WWII as a foot soldier and later studied at the Arts Students League of New York. 

Orenstein is best known for his works specializing in easel paintings and murals. Orenstein worked in the Needle and Fur trades in the 1950's, following his father's trade. His war and union experiences are often reflected in his work. One well known piece is the  mural created for local 598 Mill Mine Union in 1955. The piece - 36 feet by 41 inches - was commissioned by the union to depict Sudbury's local industrial landscape and the workers' lives.

He taught drawing and animation at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, where he was an active member of the Arts community. His works are displayed in private and public collections, most notably the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and The Art Gallery of Sudbury.
