Evan Hecox's Prints Are Invigorating On The City-centric, Art-loving Eye!

Gazing at a piece of art can sometimes take you straight from the gallery into the frame. The postcard-like etchings of Evan Hecox are just those types of pieces, as many of his series' evolved from his travels to places like Tokyo, Mexico and Berlin. Using 2 to 5 tones, Hecox creates dramatic reproductions of his travel photo albums that tell Hunter S. Thompson-like stories; silhouetted and obscured, yet very emotionally descriptive. The skylines, vendor cabanas and other mundane yet illustratively defining images of the culture and cities of Hecox's visits are transformed from everyday images to captivating masterpieces by his unusual styling techniques. Newspaper print and Chinese character script are used in place of traditional smudging and hatching tactics to create shading, figures without so-much more than an outline beside ones that have been articulately detailed and selectively colored objects highlighted among the chaotically-depicted, sedated urban settings. The etch-a-sketch looking silk-screened prints are produced on renewable green energy and carbon-free paper so that Hecox's artistic expressions are sure to also make environmentally sound statements. Turn your home into an art gallery of graphically alurring travel souvenirs with Evan Hecox's prints! Get a feel for Hecox's work in this slideshow!
