I haven’t posted many pieces by Evey, mainly because I haven’t actually seen all that many. She tends to paint with other Resting Bitch Face (RBF) crew members, including Pekoe and Bnie, which was the case on this wall.
What I particularly like about Evey’s work is its simplicity and femininity (without being girly, if that makes sense). Her letters are nice and organic, but it is her fills, which are so often full of happiness, that show off her creativity. Although her work is still developing, there is something about it that I find incredibly attractive.
Like so many things, once you get your eye in, you up your game. I am now noticing more pieces by Evey and realise that I probably have a fair few in my archives as well. I have known about her work for a little while, but it wasn’t until her BLM collaboration piece under Brunel Way recently that I wrote my first Evey post. This is the second.
Evey’s EVEN letters are well proportioned and the there is a nice twist with the second E reversed. Because I am teaching myself to spray paint I tend to notice little mistakes and the blue shading on the second E is slightly wrong which confuses the eye a little. It is Evey’s fills that I absolutely love though – maybe it is the natural subject of leaves and plants, but there is something very comforting one optimistic about them, and that is a good thing in these troubled times. Looking forward to posting more pieces from Evey.
On to the third part of the Black Lives Matters wall organised by Pekoe and her RBF crew from a couple of weeks ago. This section ‘LIVES’ is by Evey, an artist I don’t think I have featured on Natural Adventures before.
What a beautiful piece of writing. Everything about it is peaceful and calm and it is beautifully executed too. I suspect, just from looking at the spacing of the letters that Evey doesn’t paint walls as often as her counterparts, but she has a wonderful light touch that is far removed from the edgy reputation that some graffiti writing has. The leaf fill is very nicely done. I hope to see more from Evey.
