Devon Weist is a sculptor and installation artist that creates work reflecting ideas of body image, gender stereotypes, and identity politics.
Devon is a Chicago native and graduated from the American Academy of Art with a BFA in Oil Painting. She is mostly known for sculptures that incorporate uncomfortable depictions of body parts, while occasionally including interactive or mechanical features.
When not working on her personal art, she is a freelance designer for political campaign materials. Devon has also illustrated a children’s book for a former Illinois legislator, and has worked on other children’s books for personal projects.
Currently, Devon is pursuing internship opportunities with plans to attend graduate school in the Fall of 2022.
