Kristofir Dean is a painter based in Hamilton, Ontario.  He holds a BFA from Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCADU) and has shown his work internationally.

“Colour radiates from a focal point. It spreads outward, brings you inward. It stirs the mind, heart, and spirit. In all aspects of life, colour has great significance. In food and fashion, spirituality and science, and many other things – identification, meanings and moods are encoded in colours. Yet in our everyday surrounds, we mute polychromatic possibilities with neutral or earthen tones, neglecting the vibrant. Why are the things we make mostly monochromatic? What happened to the rest of the spectrum? These are questions I ask myself every day.

In my paintings, I bring forth the full spectrum of colour in bold shapes and lines. Each mark is saturated with rich hues. They vibrate when placed beside one another.

I paint these colourful pieces to bring the spectrum back to the home and the wall, transforming the space by adding visual spice.”
