Deva (David Kerkkonen)
Resides: Calgary, Alberta

An outsider, I am more comfortable with dirty sidewalks and alleys than I am with art galleries and exhibitions. What I know about art I have mostly learned from books and magasines, or been led to by my heart, and my eyes.

A neo-primitive, I am more familiar with things civilization throws away than I am with civilization itself. I am far more familiar with garbage, graffiti, weathered posters, and broken toys than I am with skyscrapers, or what goes on within them. I am a huge fan of shadows, stains, boot prints, spilled paint… the ethemeral traces of a strange new world.

A dreamer, I walk with my eyes to the ground, an archaeologist exploring an alien landscape. From fragments and debris, I try to make sense of a world which only exists within my mind.
