Marcel Dzama is a contemporary artist originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba. He first encountered success with the Winnipeg drawing collective The Royal Art Lodge (1996-2008). Dzama’s visual language is often described as whimsical, surreal, and playful. His artwork is also highly recognizable due to his signature palette, composed of dark browns, greys and reds. Dzama also creates sculptures, paintings, collages, films and album covers. Most recently, he designed the stage and the costumes for The Most Incredible Thing, a New York City ballet production that opened in February, 2016.

Marcel Dzama now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He has exhibited in solo shows all around the world, most notably at the Musee d’art contemporain de Montreal, the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich and the Centro de Arte Contemporaneo in Malaga, Spain. His artwork is collected by numerous international museums such as the Center Georges Pompidou in Paris, Dallas Museum of Art, MOMA, Museum of Contemporary Art of North Miami, National Gallery of Canada and the Tate Gallery in London.
