Unlike other Pop artists who took their subjects from advertisements, newspapers, and magazines, Dine preferred using everyday objects and familiar symbols such as tools, hearts, articles of clothing and human figures in his work. He has been commonly considered a pop artist due to his realizations of many drawing series representing familiar and common objects; nevertheless, he affirmed: "I used them as metaphors and receptacles for my marginal thoughts and feelings". Common objects were Dine’s primary motifs, as in his iconic series of hearts and brushes. Through his figurative representation he always aimed at conveying the hidden concept; for this reason, he is always considered an important figure in Neo-Dada movement and a forerunner of Neo-Expressionism. “The figure is still the only thing I have faith in terms of how much emotion it’s charged with and how much subject matter there is,” he once said.
Jim Dine (Cincinnati, Ohio, 1935) is an American artist who rejected any formal association with Pop Art, but who is still commonly considered an important exponent of this art movement. He became famous for his "happenings", chaotic art performances originally invented together with important artists, such as Claes Oldenburg and Allan Kaprow, and important musicians, like John Cage. His work was featured in the historic exhibition "New Painting of Common Objects" at the Norton Simon Museum, one of the earliest exhibitions of Pop Art. Since 1971, he has focused on his different series of drawings. In the 1980s, he began realizing sculptures. In 1984, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis organized the important solo show “Jim Dine: Five Themes”. In 1989, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts hosted Jim Dine's drawings dated 1973-1987. In 2004, also the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. organized the exhibition "Drawings of Jim Dine." Dine's artworks enrich numerous public permanent collections, such as those of the British Museum and the Tate Modern in London, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Hirshhorn Museum, Sculpture Garden, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington D.C., the Honolulu Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in California.
