Daniel Evans

Artist in Residence

Daniel Evans studied Fine Art, English, and Psychology at Grant MacEwan University, and majored in Drawing at ACAD. There he was introduced to intaglio printmaking at and it wasn’t until pursuing postgraduate studies in Illustration at the North Wales School of Art and Design that it became a major component of his work. Since completing a Masters of Arts in the fall of 2012, Evans has been an avid supporter of Edmonton’s artist-run centres. Earlier this year he received the Emerging Artist award at the Mayor’s Celebration for the Arts in St Albert.

Daniel’s work explores questions of narrative and mythmaking in both historical and contemporary contexts. His work manipulates the structure, tropes, and language of myth, fairytale, and folklore, to explore, deconstruct, and challenge the entrenched hegemonies of both classical and contemporary mythmaking.
