Dean Levin (b. 1988) was born in Johannesburg, he now lives and work in New York. He received his Bachelors of Architecture from Pratt Institute Brooklyn, New-York in 2012. His work has been shown internationally at spaces such as Kohn Gallery and Roberts and Tilton (Los Angeles), Bill Brady Gallery (Kansas City), Luring Augustine, Sean Kelly, Marianne Boesky (New-York), Super Dakota (Brussels), Berthold Pott (Cologne), Galleria Marta Cervera (Madrid), Rod Barton and Pippy Houldsworth (London), Coma (Sydney), Fredric Snitzer Gallery (Miami).

His background in architecture informs his study of light, color, and space through sculpture, painting and installation. Through these various media, Levin melds industrial and traditional art materials and techniques. This implicit tension is indicative of his ongoing interest in mechanical reproduction versus the hand of the artist. Similarly, Levin deftly expands upon the language of Minimalism in his work—the grid, seriality, modularity and the viewer-centric phenomenological experience are all important facets of his practice.
