About the artist
Ben Evans is a New York based artist painter and illustrator widely known for his vibrant portraits and scenes. Capturing androgynous figures, Evans uses his art as a way to expose and normalize what people do between doors. Drawing inspiration from his own childhood memories and experiences as a queer male, Evan's work portrays varying perspectives into moments in time and space in which his audience can relate to similar experiences, whilst also commenting on current social and political topics such as identity and gender norms.
Since graduating from the Pratt Institute, Evans has amassed a large following of dedicated fans and collectors who are attracted to his unique style, and pop culture infused work. His technique and unapologetic depictions of of drugs, sex, and everyday life have earned him international press as well as several large commercial projects and exhibitions.
