Devin L. Joslin - May 18, 1985 - March 18, 2016. Devin, age 30, of Salem, Oregon, passed away suddenly on Friday, March 18, in Salem. Devin was a passionate artist, creating his own brand of portrait art, which he dubbed “Acrylic Spray Paint Street Art Portraits”. A sampling of his most recent works can be viewed on his website, www.SucioUno.com. Devin felt most at peace in the outdoors, specifically when spending time at the many hot springs which Oregon has to offer. He was a free spirit, at one time traveling to San Francisco, and squatting in Golden Gate Park before securing a humble squat in a row apartment. Devin often dreamt about moving to Louisiana, where through acquisitive prescription, he could acquire title to property through possession. He believed firmly in squatters rights, brandishing a tattoo one of many beautiful works of art that adorned his body reflecting his belief in the lifestyle. Devin was a devout anarchist, happily discussing his views with anyone willing to listen, and avidly reading independently published anarchist literature. He loved Bound Together Anarchists Collective Bookstore and could spend hours perusing the records at Amoeba Records both located on Haight Street, in San Francisco, California. He enjoyed riding motorcycles and the motorcycle culture, learning new things spending hours researching various topics online or watching Vice documentaries traveling to new places, and practicing his “hooligan” philosophy on a daily basis. Devin, affectionately referred to by his nickname, “Dirty” by those who knew him, will be missed by many, but remembered by all whose lives he touched. A funeral has been scheduled for Saturday, March 26, 2016 at 2:00pm, at Virgil T. Golden Funeral Service & Oakleaf Crematory, 605 Commercial St SE, Salem.
