Don McIntyre is an Ojibway from Timiskaming First Nations in northern Quebec. He was raised between his grandfather's farm and Toronto, now residing in Lethbridge, Alberta.
Though traditionally trained in the Woodland style of painting and carving, Don is infinitely influenced by the rhythms and themes that currently surround him. He juxtaposes the recognizable style of his people with the influences of the city. He combines traditional forms and colors with urban themes and ironic humour to create images distinctly his own.
