Since time immemorial, some people often underestimate the power of art. But despite these unfavorable and stereotypical tribulations towards art, artists have continuously shown themselves worthy of being genuinely praised by society. And being one of the foremost advocates of pushing creatives to be rightfully recognized, Cade Kegerreis – the 23-year-old artist, entrepreneur, and founder of DVLVD – has proven that an artist’s work lies beyond creating colorful pieces out of the mundane.
As the brilliant mind behind DVLVD, Cade Kegerreis has led the company towards greatness through perseverance and his unique approach to displaying his art. While other creative companies use art to chase money-making pursuits, Cade took it upon himself to shape DVLVD according to his advocacy of using art as an avenue to raise awareness on pressing societal issues. With a noble purpose in mind, Cade hopes to invite a very diverse community to accept art as a conversation starter through DVLVD.
DVLVD is a creative company that focuses on celebrating art that tackles pressing issues around the world. It serves as an avenue where people can start conversations with each other and engage in healthy discussions that lure people into thinking about today’s ongoing problems. To Cade Kegerreis, art should not be limited to beautifying certain elements in things or places that people usually see. Instead, art should appeal to each person’s various senses and understand the meanings hidden behind the messages that the former seeks to convey.
Aside from its promising mission of spreading awareness through art exhibits, Cade Kegerreis also expanded DVLVD as a company that showcases creative and fashionable apparel. And unlike the usual fashion brands, DVLVD’s expansion continues to center its purpose to the very core of the exhibit’s mission – that is to lobby for sparking conversations between people.
But behind DVLVD’s scintillating vision towards society’s progress lies the eminence of the company’s founder Cade Kegerreis. Coming from the sunny and bright-colored streets of Waco, Texas, Cade always had an eye and passion for the arts. While some traditional individuals discourage building a path towards the arts, Cade made it his mission to hone his abilities and create a future that centers on showcasing his creative talent and skills. So, he pursued the arts throughout his academic life, and in 2017, he graduated with a degree in Studio Art. he has then been working as a full-time artist ever since.
With everything that he has gone through after his life in college, Cade was able to save enough financial resources to start his own company. Through his passionate vision, coupled with raw talent, unparalleled skills, and perseverance, he then created DVLVD and began his journey of showcasing meaningful art. By the time he finished making his masterpieces, he had started displaying these in solo art exhibitions. In fact, Cade’s debut solo art exhibition is wrapping up at a gallery in downtown Waco called Cultivate712.
In the coming years, Cade Kegerreis hopes to consistently develop a series of projects focusing on certain issues around the world. Through DVLVD, he wishes to inspire other artists to do the same.
