Dings was trained as a painter, but shortly after graduating from the National Academy in Amsterdam he was commissioned to create a work of art for the Willem-Alexander riding school in Weesp. Although this work is still mainly two-dimensional, (sliding doors for horses) his beginning oeuvre moved towards the monumental and three-dimensional. However, he never lost sight of painting and it is almost always at the basis of the monumental work. As a painter he occupies an autonomous place in addition to his work as a sculptor.
