A Mistake Is A Beautiful Thing brings together a personal collection of images taken by (and of) artist Devin Troy Strother and designer Yuri Ogita. The photographs offer a glimpse into the artists’ daily life — collages in progress, spilled paint, graffiti, bootleg tattoos, a horse, many dime bags — accompanied by short and often humorous captions. The work moves through a set of recurring motifs to build a nuanced dialog that examines art and its references, cultural phenomena, and the experience of being a person of color in the US. 

This was published by Printed Matter and Coloured Publishing in an edition of 500 copies with hardcover and silver foil stamping.
