Cali Thornhill DeWitt (born 1973, Vancouver Islands, Canada) lives and works in Los Angeles, USA.
Dewitt’s practice reflects and comments on a complex and fragmented world and existence, but instead of fostering first world apathy or nihilism, it induces curiosity, defiance and thought. Working in the tradition of Jenny Holzer, Barbara Kruger, John Giorno and the late great Mike Kelly, DeWitt is a multidisciplinary artist. Recent and ongoing collaborations include Varg (album covers) Kanye West (Pablo World), Iceage (videos, album covers), A Four Labs (two collections), Someware (a collaboration with artist Brendan Fowler) and numerous projects with Haruka Hirata of Big Love.
DeWitt has published numerous artist books: Let Me Crash Here For A Moment, 2018, Violent Music, 2018, 29 Flags, 2017, Manhattan, 2017, First Show, 2017, Over The Volcano, 2016. The exhibition came to life in collaboration with V1 Gallery where DeWitt has mounted several solo exhibitions.
