Dine was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1935. He went to the University of Cincinnati and the Boston Museum School. He got a BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts degree) at Ohio University in 1957. In 1958 Dine moved to New York City.[1] He worked on Happenings with artist Claes Oldenburg, composer John Cage, and others.[2] Happenings were disorderly "performances that took place around the city ... away from the areas traditionally associated with art museums and galleries."[3]

In the 1960s he became famous for painting bathrobes. He said, "I was looking for a way to do self-portraits without painting my face. I saw this bathrobe in an ad. It had no one in it—but it looked like my shape, so it became a sort of metaphor for me."[1]

In the 1970s drawing became more important to him than painting. He used common objects such as tools, hearts, trees, birds.[2] These objects "are easily understood by the viewer, while also suggesting deeper layers of meaning."[3]

Dine's art is in the permanent collections of many museums. Some of them are:
