2019 FEATURED ARTISTS
I’m drawn to creative expression that involves and engages its audience; that which is inclusive and accessible…like music.
In college I gravitated towards printmaking and artists books because I could create multiples to share. Then I discovered the art form of street painting – drawing with chalk pastels on the pavement. The gallery came outdoors. The artists engage with the audience in the creative process, working in public against time and the elements of nature: daylight, weather, fatigue.
Ever is a fine artist, classically trained in painting, drawing, sculpture and traditional animation. He is known most prominently for his award winning Chalk Street Painting talents. He began his journey enriched by the vibrant colors of Mexico and eventually by the multicultural influences of Southern California. Through his art, he shares an interpretation of colors that goes beyond what the naked eye can see in all that surrounds him. We are very proud to have Ever returning again this year.
