Ned Evans’s paintings are infused with the light, space, and rhythms of Southern California, from ocean to mountains to desert. With a palette that is rich and intense or sun-bleached and weathered, his paintings are inspired by the natural world for which he has an unending passion. An avid surfer, Evans has called Venice home for almost forty years. He finds parallels in his experiences in the waves and water and as a painter in his studio.
Evans received his BFA and MFA from the University of California, Irvine. His paintings have been exhibited extensively, nationally and internationally, in nearly thirty solo shows and numerous group exhibitions. His works are included in important public and private collections worldwide.
