“As an artist, I am seeking to record those intimate moments when I am able to identify with many others through representation, mood and feeling.” DF
Dion Fitzgerald (DF), born in Toronto and raised between Antigua & Barbuda and Barbados, is a visual artist whose practice is informed by memory of growing up in these diverse and culturally-rich environments.
DF began studying painting in 2005 and is known primarily for his signature Chiaroscuro works.
DF’s art has been exhibited in galleries in the Caribbean, Asia, Europe and the UK and private collections globally. His commitment to social justice is realized through ongoing work with at-risk and vulnerable populations.
