Devin Finley | FEATURED Artist
At the end of last year, Portland muralist Devin Finley and seven regional graffiti artists completed an expansive mural titled We Are Portland. Located in Southeast Portland near the Tilikum Crossing Bridge, the mural features six large colorful portraits of Portlanders. This massive, full city block mural can be seen greeting viewers as they head into the Central Eastside Mural District.
Featured prominently on the wall between each person is a stellar lineup of work by prominent Portland and California Bay Area graffiti artists. The contributing artists are Other, Nimby, Purge, Twigs, Raskoe, Norse, and Ckos.
“The mural focuses on several portraits, showing our city’s diversity; LGBTQIA+, people of color, various ages and gender identities, folks who are unhoused, and people living with disabilities, said Devin Finley. “I wanted to turn away from the typical skin tones used to represent people, and experiment with an array of other colors. The additional portions of graffiti are a nod to the roots of where I acquired my skill set for this line of work.”
