DJ Stiles paints original digital imagery of the queer experience in a pop art style, characterized by bright colours and stylized, reductionist portraiture. He is inspired by the Pop Art Movement, the male form, urbanity, the City of Toronto, Colombian street art and a never-ending parade of inside jokes. His subject matter usually includes gay men, glamourous women and fierce queens.
DJ Stiles studied visual art and art history at the University of Toronto, St. George Campus, from 2000 to 2004. He has been producing pop art paintings since March 2016.
