Roya DelSol is Black filmmaker, photographer & independent curator based in Toronto. Working primarily as a lens-based artist, she aims for her work in all spheres to centre and uplift the experiences Black, queer, and marginalized peoples. She sees technology, magic and ancestral knowledge as not disparate, but interconnected frameworks to inform each other; utilizing the subversive qualities of magical realism in imagining Black futures. She is drawn to the sharp, chaotic and unsettling nature of Black femme rage, revenge and retribution.
Having directed music videos, live performance series and documentary projects; Roya’s imagery has been featured in outlets such as the FLARE, Globe & Mail, and NOW! Toronto. She has worked on projects for Spotify, Adidas, HXOUSE, YouTube, NXNE and Maggie's: Toronto Sex Workers Action Project. She has shown at Patel Brown Gallery and The Textile Museum of Canada; and has curated exhibitions with Trinity Square Video and Doris Mccarthy Gallery.
