This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following biographical information has been provided by David Kwiat, researcher:

Marcel Dzama was born in 1974 in Winnipeg, Canada and received his BFA from the University of Manitoba. Most well known for his small, detailed watercolor renderings of tree-people, bears, and ghoulish creatures engaged in ghoulish activities, Marcel Dzama began creating his surreal, melancholy signature works after his home burned down in 1996.

As a founding member of the Winnipeg art collective, The Royal Art Lodge, Dzama became known for his disturbing depictions of hybrid creatures plucked from pop-culture and vaguely Canadian folklore, often using root beer extract when employing the color brown. While exhibiting at such places as The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and The Museum of Modern Art in New York, Dzama collaborated on works with other members of The Royal Art Lodge, including Drue Langlois and Michael Dumontier, and family members Neil Farber (his uncle), Hollie (his sister), Shelley Dick (his wife), and Jeanette (his mother).

He began exhibiting solo in 1997, while still a member of the Winnipeg art collective. In 2003 a collection of his work was published by McSweeney's entitled The Berlin Years. Most recently he created album cover art for They Might be Giants and Beck, and has been involved in sculpture and video production. Marcel Dzama lives and works in New York.

The Royal Art Lodge members: Marcel Dzama, Neil Farber, Michael Dumontier, Jon Pylypchuck, Drue Langlois, Myles Langlois, Shelley Dick, etc.
