Andrew Patrick Henry, a signpainter in Barnesville, GA, died on Tuesday, Oct. 12 at 29 years of age.

Henry died by suicide, shocking a local community that had grown accustomed to seeing his artwork around town.

A native of Griffin, GA, Henry lived in Barnesville for the past nine years. He was home-schooled as a child and obtained the rank of Eagle Scout, graduating summa cum laude from Gordon State College with a 4.0 GPA and an associate of arts degree.

Beginning his career in 2012, Henry extended his paint brush across the US and beyond. In 2016, he and 25 other artists traveled to Amsterdam to complete a nearly 80-ft.-long mural for the Heineken Experience at the original Heineken Brewery. A year later, he was approached by the producers of HBO’s Sharp Objects to paint two murals in downtown Barnesville.

A memorial service honoring Henry’s life will be held at Summers Field Park in Barnesville on Sunday, Nov. 7 at 5 p.m. The planners for the event are requesting that attendees bring artwork and other keepsakes from Henry for a tribute photo to be taken at the end of the service. More information about the memorial can be found on Facebook.


A fundraiser has been created to support Henry’s family in covering the funeral and estate settlement expenses. All residual funds after expenses will be donated to Lamar Arts, an organization that was close to Henry’s heart.
