Nathan Dixon was born in Toronto, Canada (1983). 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.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

My ultimate goal as an artist is to interpret my inspiration in a new and interesting way, be it music, art, history, mythology or world culture.

I'm primarily a portrait artist in the style of urban realism. In my current work I use watercolour, gouache, ink, coloured pencil & graphite. Even though I am inspired by many things and I use a variety of mediums, the common threads you will see in some aspect of my work are texture, saturation and depth.
