More about Dijon Barrett
A lifelong Chicagoan, Dijon Barrett (b. 1993) joined the studio in July 2017 and, in his own words, believes he has found a home. Dijon works with colored pencil to create drawings that are full of vivid color and confident line. His creativity allows him to interpret a reference image with a number of additional elements and alternate hues. His pieces are highly detailed and extremely bold in color. Figures and form within each piece have a solid outline, but are softly shaded and blended into smooth gradients. This creates a warmth and softness to his work that quickly engages the viewer.
