Evan Paul English is an interdisciplinary artist currently practicing in Brooklyn, NY. He received his BFA from University of Arizona and later earned his MFA from Pratt Institute in 2016. He co-owns Yarrow Studio, a private tattoo studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Evan's work uses a wide range of media to explore facets of 21st century queer identity within the vocabulary of Americana nostalgia and craft. His work is rooted in his childhood, growing up in suburban Idaho. Evan is interested in the ways in which culture shapes our self-understanding through materials and objects, often utilizing decorative arts to subvert stereotypes and ask deeper questions about our own gender narratives.
Evan is currently an Artist Fellow at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art and is participating in the 2020 edition of SPRING/BREAK Art Show in New York City.
