Just hat grade einige Bilder von Streetartist Evols erster Ausstellung in London gepostet: EVOL Show @ POW in London und EVOL in London – Smithfield Market. Hier kann man einen schicken (und nicht ganz billigen) Print von ihm kaufen, hier ein kleines Interview aus dem Pictures on Walls-Newspaper (PDF) zur Ausstellung:
What’s your favourite smell? Well I guess… Ah, no, let’s say - coffee.
What superpower would you have? I hate energy drinks.
What’s your favourite painting? A child’s drawing explaining to me how volcanoes work.
How do you get paint off your hands? Patience. What doesn’t come off by washing, does while eating.
What’s your funniest painting story? Setting myself on fire while checking the coverage of the paint with a lighter.
Have you ever been
arrested while painting? No.
What’s the most important lesson life has taught you? Things may be very different than they appear.
Who’s your favourite artist?
None, but to quote a friend, ‘It’s hard not to like Martin Kippenberger.’
What’s your favourite music to paint to? It would change every 5 seconds. Right now: Mulatu Astatke, Éthiopiques 4, Tied & Tickled Trio, Observing Systems, Slayer, Undisputed Attitude.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be? Most of it. And the need to do that.
