Professor Devan Shimoyama is among the 50 artists and art entrepreneurs profiled in the new book We Are Here: Visionaries of Color Transforming the Art World by Jasmin Hernandez, the founder of the influential blog Gallery Gurls.

Centering BIPOC, with a particular focus on queer, trans, nonbinary, and BIWOC, We Are Here features 50 of the most influential voices in New York, Los Angeles, and beyond. Striking photography of art, creative spaces, materials, and the subjects themselves is paired with intimate interviews that engage with each artist and influencer, delving into their creative process and unpacking how each subject actively works to create a more radically inclusive world across the entire art ecosystem. A celebration of compelling intergenerational creatives making their mark, We Are Here shows a path for all who seek to see themselves in art and culture.
