As a New York-based artist, Evan Venegas uses imagery that is loosely based on the urban, industrial landscape that surrounds him. His creative process is rooted in the recognizable world but expressed by abstract shapes and vibrant colors. He seeks to create an experience that inspires a change in perception for the viewer.
Venegas began painting with oils at a young age, and started developing his technique, of realistic rendering of imaginary objects, in his early teens. Born and raised in Queens, New York, he began his art education at Parsons School of Design, then moved to San Francisco to complete a BFA in Painting at the San Francisco Art Institute. He returned to New York in 2000.
