Dominican born Evoca1 is a figurative painter and muralist based in South Florida. As an autodidact, he has received his art education from the compulsive study of the old masters works and techniques. His works are a personal reflection on life as well as from observation, focusing on human behaviours and social struggles.
This new body of work is based on a series Evoca1 has been working on for the past couple of years.
‘This exhibition of oil paintings, and drawings will reflect on what we endure through our lives overcoming childhood struggles and experiences. The stories portrayed in the work are based on personal child experiences and from observations during my travels. These circumstances that range from corporal punishment/discipline to child labor, have been the main focus of my work and have been a means to shine a light on these social issues that children involuntarily endure around the world.’
Evoca1’s beautiful free style and delicate detail creates beautiful portraits which tell compelling stories. We are excited to see this new body of work from such a talented artist and with such a poignant subject matter.
