After studying to be an architect, Devin Reynolds found a path into painting through his work as a sign painter and graffiti writer. His paintings typically draw from the fabric of American urban life. For his project at  Palm Springs Art Museum, he painted on distressed facades, employing salvaged materials, discarded film and television sets, and occasional new construction. The installation highlights the idea of the urban wall as a kind of canvas for both self-expression and chance aesthetics.

Reynolds lives and works in Los Angeles.

Special thanks to Graeme Flegenheimer, curatorial advisor for the Outburst Program.

This season’s exhibitions are sponsored by the Herman & Faye Sarkowsky Charitable Foundation and Yvonne & Steve (in memoriam) Maloney.
