ARTIST INFO
Graham Dean has been exhibiting Internationally for over 40 years with over 100 solo shows . He has work in countless Museum and private collections around the World and has a monograph out published by Unicorn .In many ways he has had two careers. After an initial decade of life size paintings in acrylic on canvas dealing with Urban Realism which brought him a great deal of success he changed in about 1985 to ‘re-inventing’ watercolour often on a very large scale using several sheets of thick handmade paper which are cut , ripped and torn into position . Coined as being ‘reverse archaeology ‘ due to their layering of subject matter and art papers, these works are more elusive , mysterious and visceral compared with the earlier realistic works . Dean lives and works in Brighton by the sea and he also has a house and studio deep in the countryside of Umbria, Italy
