Brian Lawrence Dickson graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2009 from the Sculpture and Environmental art department. Once graduated, he spent several years making paper based sculptures, installations and drawings. These works would often purely be made using either paper or card and a craft knife.

In recent years Brian Lawrence Dickson has incorporated his love of the Beautiful Game, football into his work. Again, solely working with the medium of crafting paper and collage, he has begun to incorporate his conceptual thoughts on the game into his work.From an obsession with the colours and visual structures used within the game, he aims to celebrate the sport in its most basic, visual form. Taking influence from pitch markings and classic kit designs, his work aims to expose the beauty within the beautiful game to fans and non-fans alike.
