Derek Dickinson [Biography]

Derek Dickinson

Derek Dickinson originates from South West England. After leaving school he studied to become a hairstylist, leading to a successful career, including a teaching position at Plymouth College. In 1983 he relocated to London and worked as a designer and stylist for film, photography, television, video and performance, as an assistant director on music videos and was also engaged in artist management and PR. His work was wide-ranging, predominantly associated with the music industry, working with various international artists such as Kiki Dee, Annie Lennox, Shakespeare’s Sister, Morrissey, Elton John, and Rod Stewart.

'Over the past few years I have worked predominantly in monochrome. In effect removing all colour, working in white, with occasional tones of grey and pure black. More recently for this new collection I have now introduced colour.
Using unique reliefs of muslin to create form, revealing eclectic, emotional expression through contorts of paint soaked fabric. Expressionistic yet controlled, muslin is thrown repeatedly and teased until the ethos of the piece is revealed.'
