Report

Being a Trans-man definitely plays a huge role in my life and my artwork, and being in the LGBTQ+ community has given me the opportunity to meet so many other wonderful people; both creators and fans.

Biography

Canadian Transgender artist Joey Dean creates his own pop-surrealist twist on feminism with a touch of comedy.

Resonating with the Surrealists and Romanticists, as well as the work of American-Traditional tattoo artists, Dean’s paintings warp perception with contorted perspective and misplaced anatomical features — often poetic and bold, sometimes even graceful — creating optical illusions and dreamscapes. 

His award-winning abstracts and surrealist illustrations have been featured in half a dozen independent publications and his work has been showcased in libraries and schools. While his passion for painting dates back to 2012, many of Dean’s recent works are digital design and traditional ink illustrations.


Influences

Salvador Dalí, Hieronymus Bosch, Vincent van Gogh, Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni, Leonardo da Vinci
