Evan Polenghi Artist Bio:
Evan Polenghi is a product of Milano, Italy and New York City. His bicultural and bilingual background have encouraged his dedication to continually expanding his horizons and crossing boundaries by exploring other cultures through his art and through his travels. Evan's ongoing contribution is as a creative of unusual artistic diversity, versatility, and innovation in the Fine Arts, with mixed media works that have a sculptural basis, as well as within the Design and Illustration world. His works have spanned a gamut from works on canvas, to larger mixed media works, early works in stone, to paper, pen and ink, and auditorium-sized murals, serious to whimsical. Evan has had the opportunity to exploit his skills and versatility to complete projects for a wide variety of companies, private entities and organizations with a diverse range of visual needs, from business and adult interest to creating works that capture the attention of children, encourage their participation and convey positive reinforcement to the environment in which they are created. Evan's educational background in Italy, later in Mamaroneck NY, and at Pratt Institute (B.F.A. with honors) have provided the underpinnings for his foray into many aspects of the world of visual arts. Among Evan Polenghi's accomplishments are several commissions and an extensive list of commercial clients including the Museum of Modern Art, The Gap, The World Financial Center, Time Inc.,Toshiba, The New York Times, among others. Evan's work is also in private collections around the world including the U.S., Japan, Europe, and Latin America. Evan has consciously maintained a separation between the Commercial and Fine Arts world which, although challenging, has helped him retain a purity in both. This has permitted Evan to succeed in both areas building a foundation of powerful Imagery which crosses this imaginary line. One of Evan's strengths is his ability to alternate his visual languages and communicate to many walks of life. He accomplishes this versatility with intricate complexity or brash simplicity. Evan's images convey the consistent philosophy that art is a language, a language that communicates simply and directly or in a demanding more complex manner. Clarity is always the underlying objective. Evan's more personal work deals with that he calls "Life Basics," a communication of the elemental essential aspects of our existence, trials, successes, and efforts of our lives.
