DB Amorin (b. Honolulu, Hawai’i) is an artist who explores audio-visual non-linearity as a container for intersectional experiences.

His work has garnered awards from esteemed organizations including the Oregon Arts Commission, the Ford Family Foundation, Regional Arts & Culture Council, the Precipice Fund grant funded by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Calligram Foundation and administered by Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (PICA). His visual art and curatorial programming have been exhibited internationally at A4 Arts Foundation; the ImagineNative Film + Media Arts Festival; Luggage Store Gallery; Soundwave ((7)) Biennial; PICA; Portland Art Museum; Oregon Contemporary; the Honolulu Museum of Art; Honolulu Biennial 2019.
