FTIgallery.com offers Northeast collector’s prominent works from Blue Chip artists in the POP, Urban and Contemporary movements. Jim Dine was born on June 16, 1935 in Cincinnati, OH. Jim Dine is an artist affiliated with the Pop Art movement of the early 1960s, though his work draws significantly from Abstract Expressionism and Dada assemblage and collage techniques. But Dine’s association with Pop Art is problematic, and the artist prefers to emphasize the hands-on, gestural, and expressive in his work, rather than the mechanical and impersonal characteristics of Pop Art. Dine is known for his ability to combine the iconic and the personal in ways that evoke the expressive role of the artist as individual. He works in several mediums, ranging from painting, drawing, and mixed media, to sculpture, photography, book illustration, and printmaking. The artist lives and works in New York and Vermont.
