Cincinnati, Ohio, b.1935
Dine studied at the University of Cincinnati and the Boston Museum School and received his BFA from Ohio University in 1957. Dine moved to New York in 1959. He staged his first Happenings with Claes Oldenburg and Allan Kaprow at the Judson Gallery, New York.
His recent art uses imagery borrowed from ancient Greek, Egyptian, and African objects. In his paintings, drawings, sculptures, graphics, collages and assemblages he combined different techniques with handwritten texts and words and set real everyday objects against undefined backgrounds.
Dine's work can be found in collections around the world including, Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Jewish Museum, NY; National Gallery, Washington DC; Boston Museum of Fine Art; and the Art Institute of Chicago.
