Devin Gohil
Devin Gohil is an artist and teacher based in Leicester. Gohil takes inspiration from retro video games from his childhood. Worlds full of light and colour, a contrast to the industrial neighborhood he grew up in: Bricks and mortar engulfing the sky, only shafts of light piercing through. He has exhibited work in spaces such as New Art Exchange, Broadway and Backlit gallery and has curated a variety of diverse exhibitions within Twitchel Gallery. Through his paintings, Gohil aims to provide positive representation that empowers young queer people of colour, delivering the narratives he needed growing up but didn’t see in the cinema. His teaching practice informs his creative practice.
