Jeremy Dean has built a reputation for exploring issues critical to society through art. Deconstructing and re-contextualizing iconic symbols of power and status, his work addresses social, political, economic and cultural themes and questions the notion of modernity and human progress.
His work spans the spectrum of film, animation, drawing, interactive sculpture, and installation. Dean received his BFA from Flagler College and attended an intensive film program before embarking on the six year journey of creating the truly independent feature film Dare Not Walk Alone which received numerous awards and a theatrical release. He was inducted into the Writers Guild of America 2008 and was recently given a special film screening at BAM, Skirball Center (LA) and the Martin Luther King Center in Atlanta. He has been exhibited both nationally and internationally in galleries, museums, and art fairs. His largest work to date “Back to the Futurama”, where the artist transformed a H2 Hummer into a horse pulled stagecoach, received much critical praise at it’s premier in 2010. The artist has been featured in The New York Times, Art in America, Sculpture Magazine, Juxtapose, The New York Post, the Wall Street Journal, The Miami Herald, Art Slant, Current TV, ABC World Report, Huffington Post, Reuters, MSNBC, and countless blogs and niche media. His work is in the collection of 21C Museum, The New York Public Library (Prints) and numerous private collections.
