Melvyn Evans: Imprinting the Land

Upper Space
16 Nov 2019–23 Feb 2020

Melvyn Evans will reveal a new body of work inspired by the Yorkshire landscape and coastline, all of which is available to buy.

Widely exhibited throughout the UK, including at the Royal Academy, the Royal College of Art and Somerset House, the Kent-based artist initially trained as a marine engineer spending time working on submarines, before becoming a professional artist in 1992. Since this time, Evans has developed a signature style of strong, bold imagery, with inspiration coming from artists such as Edward Bawden, Eric Ravilious, Henry Moore and the St Ives School. His work is informed by the British coastline, its landscape and working practices. Monuments, chalk figures, coastal paths, fishing boats, and Thames barges all play a part in the artist’s work, evoking a sense of place by recognisable landmarks and the use of a carefully considered colour palette.
