If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants
- Sir Isaac Newton
My intention is not to abstract what can be seen, but to concretize what cannot.
- Adrian C. Evans IV
My name is Adrian "Ace" Evans IV and I'm a Philadelphia-based visual artist.
originally from northern New Jersey, I've been painting since 2017.
My approach with every canvas is to materialize a vibe, a sensation, a mood, an emotion. I do not meticulously plan out each square inch of the canvas, but there is a method to the madness.
The right balance of texture and color combined with moments of calm and chaos is woven into every piece.
I make art that I want to see in the world.
Art that I can look at everyday and find something new in.
Art that inspires.
Art that awes.
