About Dean

Baltimore County

Dean Kane's picture
Since 2000, artist Dean Kane has developed a unique visual art form he has coined "PhotoSculpture”. Inspired in part by Mondrian, Dean has created 3-dimensional, modular wall art using a combination of photography, canvas, wood and metal structure, embellished with acrylic paints and mediums. His collection of modular pieces allows for an ever-changing installation. Dean finds joy and passion in vibrant color and creative exploration. His dedication to photography started in his teenage years... more

Architecture PhotoSculptures

The city of Baltimore, Maryland provides a historic representation in the evolution of the United States of America. In it are  buildings of eras in the making with grit, toil and sweat. I have used the technique of  modular tiles and PhotoSculpture to represent these scenes of  architecture. 

monDean Wall Art

As a fan of Piet Mondrian, an early 20th century abstract artist, I have enlightened his modular style to provide an ever changing and expanding, interchangeable presentation of new age walls using PhotoSculpture and artisitic tiles. Newly stylized Mondrian's abstractions with personalization of other artists such as Klee, Miro, Picasso and others, as well as family, flora and fauna, trips and others individualized images makes for a dynamic foundation of constantly changing, updating and  individualizing face when it takes up an entire wall. 

Flowers and Colors from around the World

The Places We've Gone

Dr. Seuss reminds us of  "the Places You'll Go."  Today is the day, we're off and away. Global places we choose with our feet in our shoes. Awe and imagination in our heads; tents and yurts, one-star boats and beds. Mountain peaks and river deltas. Sahara on camels, savanahs on elephants, canyons on horses and seaplanes to islands. We're up and down and right and left as we maneuver canoes as good as the best. Oh, the places we've been and the choices we've made to take photos with memories as we fly and ride and hike to earths great spaces!

This signature artwork is a culmination of creative expression starting with the petals of a jade plant and developing the folding leaves of a french cake enveloping its center. Once again, artistic expression uses many layers of enlarging blades supported by wood and aluminum dipped screens providing the projecting depth of this isolated flower.

People who LOVE People

People need each other. In times of love and strife, happiness and dispair, anguish and death we need each other. Family and friends from around the world provide many of the momentous memories weaved into the stories of a monDean PhotoSculpture tile. These are used singly projecting in a third dimension or installed onto a wall into a personal "history" of laughter, excitement, suprise, and at times loss. 

  • Slava Ukraine: loss and devastation and migration

    mixed media visual art
    This 10 x10 inch monDean tile made of canvas, acrylic, medium and wood brings many emotions to bear. After millennia, a unified "pre-biblical" tribe of caucasian / slavic people coalesced from Greece, Roman and Byzantine roots. From these people, the Kyivan Rus developed the plains to the east and west of the Dniper River. The diaspora fled north and west developing the european and scandinavian cultures and clashed with the mongols from the east. A reunification into the many federated tribes and later nations of Russia developed but the origins longed for freedom from repression.
