Devo Effect

An artist whose creative journey began in 2020, Devo Effect stands out by prioritizing individuality, be it in fashion, music, or art.
When did you first show an interest in art?

I first showed interest in art around 2020. That’s when I made my first song. If we’re talking about painting, I also started to show interest in 2020. It was a huge year for me.

Is your family supportive in your decision to become an artist?

My parents support me with my clothes & modeling 100% but for music, not right now but soon they will!!!

Art for art’s sake or art for food on the table? Are you a full-time artist? What’s paying the bills?

Both – I can put my art onto anything if I have a vision. I sell clothes and that’s considered my art as well as modeling. Doing unique poses and creating concepts that make the mind think are ways to convey art. But for music and painting, that’s just for art’s sake for now.

What connects you to your peers who do similar types of art? What do you think sets you apart?

Well, for modeling what connected us was weed ( I took a break for my own benefit) and we are all working towards the same goal. I consider myself as different as possible from everyone else when it comes to fashion, music, art, or my clothes. So me just being me sets us apart.

Describe your art in 3 words. Now describe yourself as an artist in 3 words.

Futuristic, Abstract, Unpredictable. Versatile, Engaging, Eye-Catching.

What are some of the current projects keeping you busy? How many unfinished works do you have in the vault at this very moment?

My clothes. Just thinking about how I’m going to bring my next fashion show to life. I’m working on this brand with my friends Cesar & VY. They are also designers. My music is somewhat finished & unfinished. I just have to put it out and modeling, for sure, is a current project that will never stop.

What does “success” look like for you as an artist? Do you have any dream collaborations?

Millions – that’s success to me and that’s most definitely in my future 100%. Also having my family straight. I would love to work with every photographer in Florida for modeling. For designing I would say the great Virgil (RIP), KidSuper , Martin Margiela, Mowalola, Hubane, and Vivienne Westwood. For music – Carti, Thug, Uzi , Lucki, Future, Sosa & Lil Wayne.

Do you have any habits that help or hinder your progression as an artist? What are some of your biggest challenges?

Procrastinating. That’s it lol but if I’m focused, Ima get it done. My biggest challenge was to stop smoking but I had to overcome it.

What do you do when you’re not creating? Do you have a preferred method of escape?

I usually watch anime or be on TikTok/Instagram but sometimes I get ideas from that so I’m still being productive. Anime and listening to music is my way to escape.

Add links and anything else you want to share with us.

Be on the lookout for my album dropping later this year or early next year and new clothes with collabs. A lot is in store. Don’t want to ruin the surprise so just stay tuned!!!
