While his famous pop art designs, record covers and pinball machines may be known for their rebellious edge, Gillies is still the quintessential Canadian boy at heart. The gifted yet humble pop artist initially moved to Montreal to pursue his dreams, before making the shift to San Francisco. Gilles, who cites bands like King Tuff, Apache, Mean Jeans and Brant Bjork, as his favourite groups, is a fan of alternative and heavy metal music himself. Real Style spoke to Gillies about transforming a childhood love of drawing into a successful career, his favourite creative influences and finding inspiration in decades of the past.
