A little history about SID DICKENS.Initially trained as a sculptor, Sid Dickens was quickly distinguished in the early 90s for his groundbreaking, unconventional, and prolific Memory Blocks. Describing himself as extremely motivated and a relentless beholder, Sid continues to take inspiration from his travels and constant research around the world. With numerous adoring fans and celebrity collectors like Sir Elton John, Liv Tyler, Dolce & Gabanna, Bono, Sting, Phil Collins, and Hilary Duff, his name and unique Memory Blocks are recognized worldwide. Born in Prince Rupert from a family of fishermen in the Pacific Coast of Canada, Sid Dickens always knew his destiny was to become an artist and this hardy coastal town in Northern British Columbia, provided a place to foster imagination in a rugged, natural world. Sids father and grandfather made their living from commercial fishing, to which Sid was introduced at the age of thirteen. Working at this on and off for over a decade earned him a stringent work ethic and the funds he needed to follow his true passion: art.
After an inspirational trip to Europe, he went to live in Mexico to study bronze casting. In 1994, inspired by an unexpected customer who discovered his first prototype of the hand-made cast tile and immediately ordered hundreds of pieces, Sid Dickens set up his first workshop in downtown Vancouver to manufacture his work fueling since, a formidable and ever-growing collection of Memory Blocks.
