Firstly, to introduce myself Dumisani “Devolutionery” Jere is an artist from the West-Rand of Johannesburg. With the keen-eye and creative ability to capture the observation of reality and the subconscious ideologies of reality in a fully passionate, innovative and surreal manner which pushes the current state of expressive and abstract forms of visual communication design. Now, in this self-promotional essay I will be exploring illustration as my main career choice in a South African context. My First solo exhibition was entitled The Visionary Art Exhibition which was hosted at Grayscale Gallery (Braamfontein, JHB) on 02 February 2013.
Therefore within my growth and progression as an illustrator and creative artist I have realised that one of my strong points is the manner that I have learned to place more refined levels of line detail in capturing expression in the most profound degree. The key to my development within the visionary boundary ideas is the greater implementation and excision that has been influenced greatly by local urban creative culture in and from Johannesburg.
DevolutionDesign is the core central creative establishment that completely caters for the following illustration (major), communication design and motion design that I studied at (Open Window (Pty) Ltd) and I currently aim to creatively produce visionary ideas for the visual art exhibition.

The artworks will mainly focus on the rediscovery and identification of my subconscious ideologies at reflecting the current existences of mental, emotional, spiritual and physical through the means of the above mentioned mediums of visual communication, presentation and showcasing.
