Evan Robarts

B. 1982, Miami Beach, FL

Lives and works in New York

 

Evan Robarts uses mops, scaffolding, tiles, chain-link fencing, tennis balls and rubber tubing to create abstract sculptures and paintings that transcend their materials’ decidedly base beginnings without ever forsaking them. Robarts has mounted solo shows in the United States and abroad, most recently at Bryce Wolkowitz in New York, Elliot Levenglick in Los Angeles, and Galerie Jeanroch Dard in Brussels. Robarts’s work has been included in group shows such as Next Wave Art at BAM in Brooklyn, New York and Wayfarers at the Berman Museum in Collegeville, PA. Robarts was born in Miami Beach, FL and presently lives and works in New York, NY.
