About artist/work
Colombian-born Juan Devis writes, directs, and produces collaborative multimedia projects focusing on social and political accountability.
OnRamp Arts is a digital arts organization in central Los Angeles that creates, produces and distributes collaborative new media projects with community members and artists.

His work: “Tropical America” is an online video game that traces the genesis of the 1981
massacre of El Mozote in El Salvador. It fuses the new world of video games to a compelling past through a journey to unravel the mysteries of the Americas. Developed in collaboration with Los Angeles artists, teachers, writers and high school students, the game features a bilingual, thematic gameplay, accompanied by an online database of educational resource materials, source texts and imagery.
