Tucked in the back streets of Moorabin's industrial area, nestled between car mechanics and metal workers is Dean Bowen's studio. Once through the door you step into a space filled with colour and the quirky characters that populate Dean's extensive body of work. Giant sculpture moulds and miniature maquettes, glistening oils, and delicate prints. Dean eagerly shows me through the space he has worked in for the last 12 years now. As he prepares to move onto a new bigger and better space, here is a time capsule of his home away from home.
