Blog’s Featured Artwork: Artist’s Bio

All artwork displayed within this site is from the Michael Dixon collection. I am forever grateful to his generosity and friendship. You are a true brother, colleague, and friend.

Michael Dixon is an artist working primarily in oil paint. He was born and raised in Artist: Michael DixonSan Diego, California, and received an MFA from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Dixon is currently an Assistant Professor of Art at Albion College a four-year liberal arts campus in Michigan. His work has been shown nationally at museums, universities, art centers, alternative spaces, and galleries. Dixon explores the personal, societal, and aesthetic struggles of belonging to both “white” and “black” racial and cultural identities, yet simultaneously belonging fully to neither. The works of artists such as Robert Colescott, Beverly McIver, Michael Ray Charles, Glenn Ligon, and Kerry James Marshall have informed his work.
