Steven Dixon earned his MFA from Arizona State University and has worked in the Printmaking Division at the University of Alberta since 1986, where he specializes in intaglio and relief printing techniques and photographic processes. He has won numerous awards for his work and exhibited internationally, including several recent important shows in Asia: Four Artists Expanding the Boundaries at the Canadian Embassy Gallery in Tokyo; Formative Impressions, KCPA International Printmaking Exhibition 2014: Eight Pacific Nations, Jincheong Printmaking Museum and Seoul Museum of Art; and Tokyo Prints 2012, at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum. Deserted industrial architecture and its surroundings has been a constant inspiration for his work. Steven explores landscapes in transition and reflects on the process of decay.
