Jim Dine (b. 1935) is an American artist who employs motifs such as hearts, bathrobes, and tools in his colorful paintings, photographs, prints, and sculptures. Born in Ohio, Dine later received his BFA from the University of Ohio after initially studying poetry at the University of Cincinatti. In the late 1950s, Dine moved to New York and contributed to the formation of Pop Art while exhibiting alongside Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol (despite never considering himself a member of the movement.) His work and performances, first known as “Happenings” in the 1960s, were also a forerunning factor in the formation of the Performance art. Today, Dine lives and works between New York, NY and Walla Walla, WA. Institutions that hold his work in their collections include, among others, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Modern in London, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.
