Devin Rojas

Rojas was born in Toleto Ohio in 1990 and moved to St. Louis at age five. He has always been fascinated with the idea that through painting he is observing something outside his-self yet it is represented from a point within his-self.

He currently is earning his BFA in Painting under the direction of Gary Passanise

among others. Rojas’s paintings are striking images of rough urban landscapes from an insiders point of view. While the work first appears to be a loose yet masterful perspective of cityscapes, it is grounded in the philosophy of “beingness.” Rojas explains that the painting is just a reference point for the “dichotomy of inner vs. outer reality.” He is currently interested in Descrates philosophy. He is involved in completing his thesis and developing his website.
