Kristofir Dean

SELECTED WORKS

Kristofir Dean’s geometric abstractions aim to capture the full spectrum of colour. Each bold line, every juxtaposing mark of vibrantly saturated hues emit both harmony and dissonance. From afar, Dean’s paintings appear as 3-D objects. They challenge the viewer’s perspective of visual space. Close up, the paintings immerse viewers in a chromatic boost that uplifts and energizes the senses.

BIO

Kristofir Dean’s geometric abstractions aim to capture the full spectrum of colour. Each bold line, every juxtaposing mark of vibrantly saturated hues emit both harmony and dissonance. From afar, Dean’s paintings appear as 3-D objects. They challenge the viewer’s perspective of visual space. Close up, the paintings immerse viewers in a chromatic boost that uplifts and energizes the senses.

Dean gathers his inspiration from gemstones, glass, and other translucent substances, capturing their ethereal luminescence in bold, hard-edge styled paintings.

Kristofir Dean holds a BFA from Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCADU). His paintings have been shown internationally, including in Australia and Hong Kong.  In addition to traditional painting, his work has been reproduced as a mural and banners for Vancouver’s South Granville BIA, and as a large mural commissioned by the Art Gallery of Hamilton.  His artwork has been seen in publications such as The Georgia Straight, Article Lookbook, and House & Home magazine.

“In all aspects of life, colour has great significance…identification, meaning and mood are all encoded in colour.” – Kristofir Dean
