About the Artist

Leo Dean is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist with a background in both
digital and analog mediums such as digital illustration, animation, and
community-based public art. Born and raised in Scarborough Ontario, Leo
is descended from a family of immigrants, with roots stemming from
Portugal and the West Indies.
He has worked as a youth artist for Mural Routes and VIBE Arts, and most
recently he has completed his first solo mural for The Canadian National
Exhibition’s Virtual Fair. Currently Leo represents himself on the VIBE Arts
Emerging Artists roster, and is developing his facilitation and leadership
skills, enabling underprivileged communities to engage in arts
programming.
His work delves into narratives that bring queerness to the spotlight,
questioning societal norms while exploring gender and racialization. As a
firm believer in transformative justice, Leo uses art as a form of harm
reduction while envisioning a prosperous future for LGBTQIA2S+ youth.
