Devin Liston (born 1983) is a Los Angeles multi-media artist who focuses mostly on oil painting and muralism. Liston’s career started in collective art teams including CYRCLE and DEVNGOSHA and at the end of 2014 he began working solo. His current work is centered around utilitarian objects in sports and carpentry, using these objects to create a language of exploring existence, meaning, and everyday life. He has done murals around the world and his personal work has shown in Los Angeles, Iceland, Hong Kong, New York, Australia, Seattle, Munich, Bayreuth, Atlanta, and Mississippi.   


The space within the canvas is the only space that exists, so naturally everything must be shoved into it like a can of sardines. For some reason, none of the objects that I find interesting can be allowed to penetrate the confines of the world I create for them, and that seems to be my only rule. I am constantly finding fuel in utility, universally recognizable objects, sports, bugs, and imagery from my childhood. I paint intuitive and direct while keeping in mind relationships, time, existence, space, and otherworldly interventions. The language of sports has helped me to create a dialogue between myself and the universal nature of competition in everything that exists.
