Rosanna Dean’s Early Career
Born in Brighton, UK (1988), to a Polish mother and English father, Rosanna began her career in illustration and, in 2007, moved to Paris to work as an art director. After deciding to pursue Fine Art, she began assisting artist and environmentalist Gregory Ryan. Rosanna returned to London in 2013 to study painting at Camberwell College of Art. Following the competition of her BA, she travelled to Florence to study Old Master Painting Techniques under the tutorship of leading painter Michael John Angel. Awarded a place on the prestigious Florence Trust Residency (2015-16) and selected for the London Creative Network, Rosanna continued to hone her unique and illustrative practice. In 2019, the artist completed her MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art.
Rosanna lives and works in London and exhibits both in London and abroad, most notably doing shows for the BFI and The Courtauld Institute of Art in London and Lane Crawford in Hong Kong. FBA Futures, an annual exhibition of figurative art by new graduates, selected Rosanna to participate in their 2020 show.
