Emily Devers (aka MIMI)
EMILY DEVERS, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS MIMI, HAS BEEN “HOLDING A PAINT BRUSH SINCE SHE CAME OUT OF THE WOMB!”. It is this lifelong love of painting that has seen Emily become an accomplished multidisciplinary artist, festival director and workshop facilitator with a focus on community engagement and global conversation. When the opportunity arose to be a part of Horizon Festival Emily jumped at it. “I love any opportunity to paint large scale outside and connect with people who are just as excited about creativity,” she said. “I get to make a mess with paint, create dialogue and artwork around the things I care about most in this world, and connect with so many great humans from communities around the world.” This connection to community will be on show during Horizon when Emily, and internationally renowned street artist Beastman, will paint a mural that will reflect and celebrate our relationship with the ocean. Stand By Me, presented in partnership with MRA, MMVAF and Horizon Festival. Live Mural Art: 28-30 Aug, 9am -5pm, Alleyway, 6 Ocean St and 37 Duporth Ave, Maroochydore.
