Martin Evans

Living in, and constantly inspired by Cumbria. The main theme running through my work is the exploration of paint and colour to capture the atmosphere of a place and time.

I tend to work fast and my favourite mediums include spray paint, acrylic, oil pastel and gouache. Incorporating contemporary tools and techniques together with bold mark making and a varied colour palette, I work in a variety of sizes. My focus is on capturing a contemporary impression and not an exact representation. My background in graphic design influences my composition choices, but it is the pure joy of painting that drives my process. 

The outcome of this was that I have now painted my first street piece and the 5.5m tall mural of Aira Force is on the streets of Carlisle.
