Artist Info Dean Bowen
Born in Maryborough Victoria in 1957, Melbourne based artist Dean Bowen has been making art for over 40 years. His multidisciplinary practice spans painting, sculpture and printmaking, with a prolific creative output consistently evolving through ‘a prism of humour and optimism’.
In the past 20 years, much of Dean’s work has been connected by one reoccurring motif – the bird. Originally inspired by the ‘tic tack sound’ of birds running and dancing across his metal studio roof, Dean’s fascination with birds is boldly rendered in a naive, vibrant, heavily textured style.
