About Devitt Brown

Devitt Brown has been an undeniable force in Vancouver’s art scene for the past decade. As an artist on the street, using the moniker the dark, or in galleries, using his given name, Devitt’s work is unsettling, at times hilarious and always thought-provoking. Regardless of the technique—be it stencils, photographs, paintings or collages—his work captures our incredibly fucked up zeitgeist with a grin.

About Bag

Part monograph, part magazine, each issue of Bag is devoted entirely to one emerging Canadian artist. The first issue of Bag is about Vancouver artist Devitt Brown. It’s 40-pages, it’s tabloid-sized and it’s printed on the cheapest newsprint we could find. The cover was stamped by hand because the printer feared a lawsuit (it’s a long story but we like to think that this makes each copy unique). It comes in a cheap cellophane bag, it’s signed by the artist and is a numbered edition of 250. Unnumbered copies of Bag will be given away for free in Vancouver via our mobile newspaper box. Its location will change every week, if not sooner.
