Start ASL. Web. 2 Oct. 2012. The End :) De’VIA is an art style displayed in many mediums and is created mostly by the Deaf community. One form of De’VIA, or Deaf View Image Art, interprets the hardships and such that a Deaf person or the Deaf community has gone through, sometimes using metaphors. The other type of De’VIA is acceptable for hearing people to create. It includes an interpretation of different signs, turning the sign in to the object it represents. is a Deaf American artist who was the first known artist to create art that shows her experience as a Deaf individual

Her most famous art show theme is "The Deaf Experience"
has her father as one of the person that she lists as someone who influences her art She: Quote by Betty G. Miller: "Much of my work depicts the Deaf experience expressed in the most appropriate form of communication: visual art. I present both the suppression, and the beauty of Deaf Culture and American Sign Language as I see it; in the past, and in the present. I hope this work, and the understanding that may arise from this visual expression, will help bridge the gap between the Deaf world, and the hearing world." This piece of art is a representation of what she thinks about the Deaf community not being allowed to sign. She depicts it as being a cruel form because it is as if their fingers are chopped off and their hands bound. This is a sculpture made with neon glass, a golden hand, and a TTY. She intended it to be playful though it created quite a commotion and turned out to be offending to some people. It represents the material culture of the Deaf community because it features forms of Deaf communication, like TTYs, an interpreter, and flashing lights. This painting represents an interpretation of the experience of learning the oral method, a type of communication that was taught to Deaf children in schools. was born Deaf in Kansas City on February 22, 1947

"I no longer paint what people would like to see. I paint for myself. It is about my own experience, my love of ASL and pride in our Deaf heritage. I sometimes create works that have no particular relation to the Deaf." This painting is the sign for whale shown as a whale's tail coming out of the water. This painting is acrylic on canvas and was painted in 1992. It is of a crocodile's head with it's reflection in the water below it being the sign for crocodile. 12) “Chuck Baird” RIT Web. 7 Oct. 2012 This painting is acrylic on canvas and was painted in 1993. It is someone signing art with art utensils floating around it. There is light behind the hand which I think symbolizes the amazing creations the simple word art beholds. The acronym De’VIA was created in 1989 by nine Deaf artists
The name was made because many Deaf artist believed that this form of disenfranchised art that told the stories of the Deaf community needed one
The entire name itself was supposed to be its own form of resistance by reflecting the ASL spirit.
This was at a deaf convention called The Deaf Way
The nine artists also wrote the ‘Deaf View/Image Art Manifesto’
It stated basically the rules of De'VIA
formal elements the art form should possess
different optional mediums
how can and can not create De'VIA
