Founded in 2018 with a passion for the intersection of art and architecture, Wevolve Labs is a collective of artists, makers, and doers up to creation and connection.
Our work brings together a wide range of disciplines and skills in the spirit of learning, teaching, and celebrating. We specialize in visionary projects, artful craftsmanship, and creative collaboration. Our work aims to facilitate space for empowerment, connection, and creation to occur within our community and beyond. Known for delivering large-scale, temporal artworks, as well as public art commissions and self-directed projects, our works are rooted in a balance between art and pragmatism, people and place, the individual and the collective.
Wevolve labs is led by architect, artist, and maker Nicholas Paul DeBruyne. Educated at the Savannah College of Art and Design and the world-renowned Bartlett School of Architecture at University College London, DeBruyne has a strong art and design background. He has worked with a number of design-led and award-winning architecture practices, including Asif Khan (Guggenheim Helsinki and Museum of London), HASSELL (global design-led practice), and Lake|Flato Architects (Fast Company's Top 10 Most Innovative Architecture Practices and Architect Magazine's #1 Best US Firms). His project The Hatchery was a top proposal for the Land Art Generator Initiative at Fly Ranch (shortlist), and Archaeopteryx was a 2019 Burning Man Honorarium project. DeBruyne has recently exhibited work at the FAR Center for Contemporary Arts (2020).
DeBruyne currently lives and works with Wevolve Labs in Austin, TX.
