David Evans’ encaustic art is a distillation of 30 years of work that includes university art training and a career in documentary filmmaking and photography.
The abstract compositions are influenced by the impressions made on Evans' travels to over 50 countries for National Geographic, Discovery, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, United Nations Foundation, The World Bank, and others. Tribal art, urban rhythms, folk music and emotional impressions inform his encaustic work and allow for a visceral outlet of artistic expression.
The time-consuming process of using heat to fuse together layers of pigmented and clear encaustic wax requires experimentation, planning and patience. Evans enjoys creating pieces that exploit the translucency of the medium, embodying each piece with additional dimension not found in other art mediums.
Evans continues to produce award winning documentary photography and films.
