"I started painting as a child from as early as I can remember. I always wanted my work to portray a message or mood that would translate to the viewer so it was more about subjectivity than just painting for me."
Dean Fox is a traditional and neon artist from Essex. He studied fine art and illustration at the prestigious academy of art Central St Martins then he started his career as a junior at a top London based agency producing visuals, storyboards and illustrations for a wide range of commercial clients. After working for many years in this field Dean decided to return to his first passion of oil painting and fine art.
Dean's work combines both traditional skills of drafting and oil painting with neon elements added and is often described as "old and new". The neon element represents spirit, a light beyond the usual spectrum of colour.
Every piece created by Dean has spiritual connotations and they are often heavily subjective, frequently using the figure as a means to convey a story, message or mood.
