Evri Kwong

|

Evri Kwong is a San Francisco-based artist who turns national issues such as consumerism, racism, and religious intolerance, into bold narrative paintings. His grid-like compositions combine blocks of Sharpie sketches with blocks of bright, cartoonish paintings, juxtaposing our idealized vision of America and the darker reality beneath.
Kwong received both his B.F.A and M.F.A from the San Francisco Art Institute. His work has been featured in solo exhibitions across the country, including the Robert Berman Gallery in Santa Monica, Dwight Hackett Projects in Santa Fe, the Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara, and the Catherine Clark Gallery in San Francisco. Kwong is Assistant Professor of Painting and Drawing at California State University in Sacramento.
