KEVIN DIXON


Kevin Dixon was born in Leeds in 1948. After studying at Leeds College of Art he started his career as an illustrator in advertising forming his own design based company in 1976 producing illustrations and design for many national companies. Since becoming a full time painter his bold style and strong use of colour especially the vibrant scenes from Tuscany and the south of France has resulted in a steady growth in his popularity. “The vibrancy of sun soaked lands, hot earth and brilliant skies have been my main source of inspiration – especially for the past fifteen years where I have had a home in the south of France. I have always been interested in the effect that bright sunlight has on the colour and tone of shadows, changing them from dull grey to a beautifully dappled montage of colourful shades”. Kevin’s work has been exhibited in the UK, New England and France, with paintings in private collections as far away as New Zealand, and his last exhibition in Leeds ‘A Tuscan Summer’ was a complete sell out.
