Dean Melbourne is a painter based in the Black Country with a national and international profile. He has lived and worked in the area all his life and trained at Wolverhampton School of Art at the University of Wolverhampton.
He has been a professional painter for 20 years and has exhibited internationally with Coates and Scarry at ART14, ART15, Context Miami 2015, Art Central Hong Kong, and held two Solo Exhibitions in London.
He has also recently developed a relationship with Arusha Gallery in Edinburgh and exhibited new work at The London Art Fair 2017. He has been selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition on three occasions, and his work has homes in a number of important private collections. Dean Melbourne’s paintings are invitations into secret, forgotten and imagined places, places where nature runs wild and people live at the very edges of life. He takes inspiration from the natural landscape in the countryside near his home in Stourbridge.
Dean also runs Titan Coaching and Consultancy, providing mentoring support for emerging artists and organisations in the region.
