Meet Devvi Dvinci of DVINCI1998 Music Group Worldwide in Orange County

Today we’d like to introduce you to Devvi Dvinci.

Deven “Devvi Dvinci” Dickens is a graduate of California State University, Fullerton. Moving out to Southern California from the Bay Area when he was 17, he aspired to make his aspirations become his reality. Along the way, he met so many creators and visionaries who were making the type of art he had always respected. “I always have been fascinated by art that has a meaning – art with a purpose” Dvinci explains.

Today, he has a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and is writing a book about voting rights among marginalized communities. He is also an independent artist under his own record label DVINCI1998 Music Group Worldwide. “When I started DVINCI1998 I knew I wanted to start a business that focused on building and bridging communities. It’s easy to make money in 2020 – a lot of people know this, but what good is all the money in the world when the world is sick, ignorant, and decrepit? I want to see a vibrant world full of life, full of healthy and happy people. So I decided to embody that and the birth of DVINCI1998 was initiated.”

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Progress is not a straight line. Sometimes we want things to happen fast, but all of the experience exists in the “in between” stage. I would love to be one of those people who had this spur of the moment and instant success stories, but I get to be one of the people who had blood, sweat, and tears to get where I am. I realized that I am my worst enemy and my best friend. The biggest struggle is and always has been believing in myself enough to NEVER settle for less. It’s all mental. It’s all a mind game.

DVINCI1998 Music Group Worldwide – what should we know? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
DVINCI1998 is the parent company to a lot of side businesses that I own. DVINCI1998 specializes in Media Production and Media Publishing in which a large percentage of proceeds goes towards charities, nonprofits, and initiatives to help make change. Supporting creators and creativity is my calling in life. DVINCI1998 Music Group Worldwide is my record label that I released my debut single “General Anxiety” under. Speaking about mental health and real-life situations is something we need more of in the world. Devenity Wellness is a natural shop that I own and started while I was in college. Making candles, offering energy healing, and stress relief to those around me has always been a very rewarding and positive experience for me. Lastly, DVINCIRIS Art Gallery is a virtual art gallery that showcases my animations, customized cartoons, photography, along with the artwork of other creators. I’m most proud to be so multifaceted in what I do. No two days are the same, but every day I am honored to serve and inspire others.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I define success as meeting a goal or going beyond what you thought was possible. Success is making someone smile, offering a listening ear, and becoming a better person.

  • Devenity Wellness Candle Subscriptions start at $33.33
