Evan Hecox is a multidisciplinary artist and designer. His work in the realm of design has references from Japanese prints, European poster design, 1960’s era illustration, Bauhaus typography and folk art. For more than twenty years he has created graphics for the brand Chocolate Skateboards. His work extends from small drawings to gallery installations and large wall murals. Much of his work takes inspiration from travel with imagery that ranges from major cities to remote desert scenes all of which is united by a keen eye for the mood and feeling of a particular place and moment in time. The work often reveals an underlying beauty locked within subject matter that would normally be overlooked or regarded as ugly. Urban scenes are filtered with an eye for abstraction, reducing down the scenes into simple shapes and colors, his view of the world explores the abstract, constant, organic change that occurs both in cities and in the natural world.
