Evan Hynes: Rebel Alliance
945 Chung King Road
Artist Walkthrough: Sunday, August 18th, 1 – 2:30 PM
Exhibition dates: July 27 – September 8, 2019
Evan Hynes has created a language of storytelling that is highly visible in Rebel Alliance, his first solo show at Tierra del Sol Gallery. Join us Sunday, August 18th, as he walks through the concepts, stories, and choices he’s made for this body of work.
Evan Hynes (b. 1990) is an artist working in the realm of drawing and storytelling. He studied Art History and English at Mt. San Antonio College and has been making drawings and art since high school. With his knowledge of Art History and cinema Evan has created a language of storytelling, all his own which often includes his love of dark comedy. His use of appropriation allows the viewer to connect with his work on an immediate level but once you read the text and titles a more complex narrative unfolds. Evan uses a mixture of graphite, pens, illustration markers and colored pencils for a controlled color saturation that allows multilayers to be seen. He’s been part of the Tierra del Sol arts program for seven years and has participated in a number of group exhibitions as well as curated for First Street Gallery in Claremont, CA. Evan was born in West Covina and currently lives in East Covina, CA.
