Biography

Exploring themes of decadence, patronage, and the relationship between art and wealth, Andy Dixon draws inspiration from such discordant artifacts as Flemish still-lifes, Versace silk shirts, and vintage Playboy magazine spreads. By layering historical references with contemporary social commentary, Dixon plays with the tropes of art history and questions the inherent value in luxuries from past and present. An underlying self-deprecation stirs beneath the surface of his candy-colored canvases – a poignant study in the psychology of value. 

Dixon was born in 1979 in Vancouver, Canada. A self-taught painter, Dixon turned to fine arts after years as a professional musician. His work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and art fairs internationally including Beers, London, UK (2018); Wilding Cran, Los Angeles, CA, USA (2018); Pulse Miami, FL, USA (2017); and Volta, New York, NY, USA (2017).
