At the age of 6, Djerlens Chery (DJ), discovered that he could draw. His first drawing was of Walt Disney’s, Mickey Mouse.
Although his dream was to be the next Michael Jordan, DJ’s dad knew what was good for him and went behind DJ’s back and signed him up for art class in 6th grade. He quickly realized that art was his passion.
Djerlens attended Dillard High School in Fort Lauderdale where he continued his art education. He went on to attend the Visual Arts & Design Academy at Broward College where he studied Art Education.
His art has been displayed at the Bonnet House Museum & Gardens Orchid Festival, Young at Art Museum, Made in Broward, Joseph C. Carter Park, Parker Playhouse, K.C. Wright Art Show, FatVillage Artwalks, and has painted several murals in the City of Fort Lauderdale.
