Biography

CARWYN EVANS works in mixed media, photography and installation to explore issues related to his individual sense of place. His first solo exhibition That Morning He Watched The Dawn recently took place at Oriel Davies Gallery, Newtown and contained work that reflects Evans’ personal experiences while exploring broader social and political shifts in rural Wales. Evans represents these concerns using a pared down sculptural aesthetic, working with both existing and specifically produced objects and images. ? Carwyn graduated from University of Wales Institute, Cardiff in 2001 and is currently a post-graduate student at the Royal College of Art. In 2000 he was awarded the Young Artist Scholarship at the National Eisteddfod, and was the recipient of the Ivor Davies Award at the Eisteddfod in 2003 and 2007. He was awarded a Fine Art Award at the 2009 Eisteddfod in Bala. Carwyn took part in Locws 3 in 2007 and has exhibited in group shows across Wales as well as in Denmark, Austria and Mexico. www.carwynevans.com
