Devin Troy Strother

Devin Troy Strother (b. 1986, West Covina, CA) is known for his intricate alternative narratives in a variety of mediums (mixed-media, sculpture, neon and installation). He finds inspiration in snippets of overhead conversations, movies, television, music, stand-up comedy podcasts and the work of numerous canonic artists such as Joseph Cornell, Marcel Duchamp and Henri Matisse (whose cutouts are put in mind by Strother’s exuberant collage constructions). Strother likes to incorporate humor and language relevant to his peers and does not shy from the outrageous; his titles often serving as a punch line.
Strother received his BFA from Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA in 2009. He completed a residency at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Skowhegan, Maine in 2010. His works are in the permanent collections of: The Los Angeles County Museum of Art; The Santa Barbara Museum of Art; and the Studio Museum in Harlem. They are also in prominent private collections all over the world.
