Bio:
Dean Drever's striking industrial sculptures speak to themes of power and violence, often taking the form of weapons of mass destruction including handguns, chrome baseball bats and brass knuckles. Drever attended the Alberta College of Art and Design where he studied sculpture and design. His sculpture, often engraved with provocative text, such as his chrome bat which reads "the only way it makes sense to you," comments on violence and the troubling distinctions between "sanctioned" and "unsanctioned" violence in society.

Drever's work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions that include the Toronto Sculpture Garden; the Vancouver Olympics; the Edmonton Art Gallery; and Canada House in London, England. Drever currently lives and works in Toronto.
