Born in New South Wales in 1924, Dickerson was a professional boxer before joining the RAAF and then turning seriusly to painting in 1950. He uses two-dimensional, simply styled figures to express fundamental and, in most cases, sombre human emotions. His work is represented in state and provincial galleries throughout Australia, as well as in the Metropolitan Museum of New York. Edit or add to this biography
