Dean Fox is a light artist with a unique twist on the neon medium, coupled with fine art and spiritual meaning within his work. The use of neon in the art world has boomed over the last few years with an increasing number of artists tackling the medium and high demand. However stumbling across Dean’s work, it was obvious that here was a unique approach we had not seen before. Coming from a commercial art and fine art background, Dean combines the medium of light subtly in and amongst very classical painting styles, often with figures that interact with the neon or alongside to create a story or message with the work. These large oil paintings are extremely fresh and impactful to see and the combination of oil painting and neon gives a contemporary twist to his art while he still honours traditional elements of draftsmanship and painting in these works.
