Melvyn Evans is a printmaker and illustrator based in Kent. He earned a degree in illustration from Exeter College of Art and Design, studied at Goldsmiths College London for a year, and took up drawing classes at the Royal College of Art under the tuition of Bryan Kneale RA.
Evans’s work is informed by rural traditions and our connection to the British landscape. There is a sense of prehistory in old place names and early monuments. Most of Melvyn’s prints are about the exploration of this sense of place.
