About

 
Me Myselfie and I.jpg
 

Nathan Dixon was (b. 1983) in Toronto, Canada.He was raised in Jamaica and returned to Toronto at the age of 12.

From a young age he showed a natural talent for art. In high school he excelled in art and honed his artistic career by showcasing his work in a couple of local exhibitions.

After graduating in 2001 he majored in Textile Design at Sheridan College Art & Design School. After a couple of years he realized that it was not the right path for him and left in 2003. In 2004 he attended George Brown College majoring in Fashion Design and in 2006 graduated from the“Fashion Techniques & Design” program.

For the past few years he has been designing jewellery under his own brand Nathan Dixon Art formally (Nate Inc. Designs). He is currently working as a freelance artist & designer.

“My ultimate goal as an artist is to interpret my inspiration & passion in a new and interesting way. I’m inspired by many things like History, Mythology, World Culture and Music.

My artistic style also varies from Fashion Illustration, Mixed Media, Graphic Design, Abstract, Abstract Expressionism, Cubism and Modern Art to Jewellery Design.

I work in many mediums such as Watercolour, Ink, Charcoal, Chalk, Pencil, Coloured Pencil, Acrylic and Oils. Even though I use a wide variety of mediums and styles the common threads that you will always see in some aspect of my work are: saturated colours, depth and texture.”
