Evol

Born in 1970 - Germany

BIOGRAPHY

Evol, born in Heilbronn in 1970, studied design at the Kuopio Academy of Arts and Crafts of Finland and at the Hfg Schwäbisch Gmüden in Germany and finally chose the orientation of visual art. Today he lives and works in Berlin.

Evol creates impossibly realistic paintings of architectural structures common in the former East using stencils and spray paint, the typecast tools of graffiti writers and agitprop street artists.

Painting in the public sphere on defunct East Berlin electrical cabinets, or found concrete blocks in an abandoned Dresden slaughterhouse, Evol miniaturizes the low-income appartment buildings ofthe Post-Soviet-Bloc that remain iconic monuments of the Iron Curtain’s socialist failings.

His work is thus a eulogy for the individualism and inspiration suffocated by attempts at urban utopia and, who inject poignant meaning into otherwise lifeless slabs of concrete and stone.
