Evan Colbert is an artist of the information age. He appropriates visual images from the relentless onslaught that bombards us. In his work he incorporates logos, trademarks, icons, symbols, pictograms, signage and other ubiquitous images in befuddling and often humorous juxtapositions.

Colbert has an inventive and unorthodox approach to materials and techniques for executing his paintings and prints. He often works on found or recycled materials and makes use of industrial products to make stencils, templates and textures.

Colbert is an accomplished printmaker and has printed and self-published many of his own prints. Eye Candy is the first collaborative print made at Shark’s.

Evan Colbert received a BFA degree from Metropolitan State College of Denver in 2003. He has exhibited his work in solo and group exhibitions at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, CO; the Arvada Center for Visual Arts, CO; the Detroit Museum of New Art, MI and others.

His work is in the collections of the Arkansas Art Center, Little Rock; Ericksson Radiotelecommunications, Stockholm, Sweden; the Auraria Center for Photography, Denver, CO and others.
