Devynity Wray is a visual artist and writer from Jamaica, Queens, NY, whose work makes the trajectory of her African diasporic purview and legacy prominent. Her work is in dialogue with Black heritage, iconography, and developing an experiential narrative with history and artifacts. Her current practice deploys multiple mediums, such as collage and painting, to honor, acknowledge, and navigate conversations between trauma and joy in Black American life.
Wray attended F.H. LaGuardia High School of Music, Art, and the Performing Arts, where she studied as an art major. As a writer, Wray earned her chops on New York’s slam poetry scene, making the world-renowned Nuyorican Poet’s Café her stomping ground. She was a Nuyorican Poet’s Café Grand Slam Finalist and team member in 2002. She received her BA in Africana, Puerto Rican, and Latino Studies from the City University of New York’s Hunter College in 2007 and an MFA in Visual Arts at Lesley University in 2021.
