NFT Explorations
 

 

Although Evans has worked as a traditional painter for over 4 decades now, his interest in utilizing the computer as a tool goes all the way back to the mid 1990s when he began experimenting with digital printmaking at David Adamson Editions in Washington, D.C., one of the pioneers of that medium. In 1994 he created a digitally manipulated image for the “Washington Portfolio” the first all digital print portfolio produced in the fine art world. The portfolio was eventually acquired by a number of museums, helping establish digital printmaking as a valid art form. Evans subsequently purchased his own large format archival digital printer and has continued to explore the possibilities of manipulating and creating images digitally. NFTs have recently provided an incredible opportunity to present, archive and sell such works – enabling him to also bring new dimensions to the work such as the element of time through animation and owner/artist interactive capabilities.
