‘Days Of Future/Past’ represents the vital significance for us to connect and learn from our elders. There is so much wisdom and experience that can be unearthed from these connections and it’s deeply important so we can stop reliving the cycles of out past. Through that wisdom and knowledge, we can learn about ourselves, our history and what we want from our future. 


About Devin Wesley
Devin Wesley is a figurative artist based in Los Angeles. After a remarkable twelve-year career in track and field, Devin made the decision to retire from athletics and follow his true passion: art. Devin’s work masterfully captures the divine essence of Black individuals, shining a light on the expansive spectrum of their emotional and spiritual depth. By employing monochrome techniques to highlight the interplay of light and dark, Devin aims to symbolize life’s inherent duality. Growing up in a predominantly white community and maneuvering the heteronormative athletic world, Devin experienced a notable absence of Black culture and expression, which posed challenges to his journey of self-discovery as a Black queer man. Drawing from these hurdles, Devin is dedicated to broadening representation by amplifying narratives rarely portrayed in mainstream media. Through his art, he delves into contemporary truths such as mental health, self-love, and the journey of healing from trauma, prompting viewers to reflect on their own biases, perspectives, and beliefs.
