Bio

BROOSE Gregory Dickinson (b. 1965 USA) established himself in Texas as an influential and prolific visual artist and musician. As a painter, band frontman (October 8th, TOOMuchTV, pop poppins) and producer, Broose helped define the fledgling Deep Ellum underground art scene in Dallas during the 1980s and 1990s. He was an artist-in-residence and board member for the Deep Ellum Center for the Arts, and community member for the Art Landing in Oak Cliff. In 2000, Broose built a studio in Splendora, Texas, where he independently created art and music for the next ten years before moving to the UK. He has exhibited extensively in the US and Europe, and is currently a studio artist at 44AD Artspace, Bath, England. His accolades include VideoMaker Magazine's Hottest and Brightest award winner, finalist for the Hunting Art Prize, Visions International Art Prize, Holburne Museum Portrait Prize, Bath Prize, and nominee for several Dallas Observer Music Awards including best male vocalist, best musician, best singer/songwriter, best pop act, and best album. Broose studied life drawing and painting at the New York Studio School, and holds a BFA in painting from the University of Houston (summa cum laude), and an MFA in painting from the Bath Spa University, England.
