Devon Walz is an abstract, mixed media artist, muralist and educator based in Southern California.
Her self-study of visual art began while earning a BA in Philosophy at UC Berkeley. Known for her use of bright colors and etheric feeling, the development of her work has been influenced by her interests in mysticism, ontology and psychedelia, her love of the natural world and her coastal upbringing.
Devon has worked with clients such as Vans and West Elm, collaborated on all kinds of design projects from album covers to planners, and her work is held by collectors around the globe.
In addition to her studio practice she mentors other artists via her programs and workshops, and hosts thoughtful conversations about the artist’s path on her podcast, ART + MAGIC.
"My aim is to create an atmosphere that feels both familiar and alien. Something magical that we recognize, but that's beyond our physical experience. I see each piece as a world in and of itself that seeks to communicate being and essence rather than direct meaning. "
