Chris Dean - Biography 2016

Chris Dean is a Detroit based artist specializing in the medium of lenticular printmaking. Dean's brightly colored work uses lenticular's unique capacity for illusion to create interactive compositions of depth and motion. The visually dense work prioritizes direct experience and focuses on the intersection of the recognizable and the unfamiliar.


Dean began exploring lenticular and related processes as a student at San Jose State in the mid 90's during the rise in interest in virtual reality technologies. Working first with stereoscopic processes and later lenticular, Dean has spent the years exploring approaches to these interactive mediums. Dean has exhibited widely in the United States and beyond and is the owner of the lenticular production company Midwest Lenticular.
