Devyn Galindo is fearlessly nomadic, honest and observant, with an eye toward the gently radical. Having grown up between California and Texas, she currently bounces between Los Angeles and New York, keeping time to explore surrounding cities and the South.
Devyn documents the lives of her friends emerging from the Chicanx scene in Los Angeles. Exploring her own identity as a queer xicanx artist during the current political climate has become an obsession that has led to their first publication, We Are Still Here, which launched in November 2016. Featured in i-D Magazine, Remezcla, and 2017 NY Art Book Fair, LACMA - A Universal History of Infamy, and Printed Matter’s Activism book list.
Recently she has been on the road working on my latest project, The Van Dykes. It’s both a travelogue of her journeys through the American South in a ’78 VW van as well as the creation of an audio/visual project documenting the stories of LGBTQ folks living in the South. Devyn's aiming to create an archive for the future generations, practicing activism through art. When she's home, she splits her time between Los Angeles, CA and Joshua Tree, CA.
