Who is Sid Dickens?
Born in Prince Rupert to a family of fishermen in the Pacific Coast of Canada, Sid Dickens always knew his destiny was to become an artist and this hardy coastal town in Northern British Columbia, provided a place to foster imagination in a rugged, natural world.
He studied at Vancouver’s prestigious Emily Carr University of Art and Design while working at his own studio and experimenting with unusual materials which ultimately became trademark of his distinctive style.
Internationally renowned for his historical, symbolic and sometimes gothic motifs, sensual dark tones, and sculpted tri-dimensional tiles, Sid Dickens has been adding fantasy and rebellion to each of his creations for over 20 years. Describing himself as extremely motivated and a relentless beholder, Sid continues to take inspiration from his travels and constant research around the world. With numerous adoring fans and celebrity collectors like Sir Elton John, Liv Tyler, Dolce & Gabanna, Bono, Sting, Phil Collins and Hilary Duff, his name and unique Memory Blocks are recognized worldwide.
