Self-taught, Stibbards expands upon the methods of mid-century abstract expressionism, hard-edge painting and pop art. His paintings draw upon images found in the popular media. By dislocating these images, rearranging, and juxtaposing them in unexpected ways, he subverts and challenges popular narratives. He seeks to evoke sharp reactions in the viewer.
Stibbards lives and works in North Vancouver. His work has been exhibited in both Canada and the United States.
