Chris Evans, Good Trip Gallery
Christopher Evans is a self-taught artist and the proprietor of Good Trip Gallery located at 416 South McDowell St, Raleigh, NC 27601. His work is inspired by life itself, whether it is the music from his childhood or the neighborhoods in which he grew up in. Being born and raised in Apex, North Carolina, has allowed him to incorporate a piece of home, the people, its culture, and those experiences within his work.
Creating is a focal point of Chris’ life to the extent that his days do not feel complete if he does not create a piece. Working off of feeling and raw emotion is what begins his process. When he is working off of those parts of himself, he no longer seeks a direction for his work, allowing whatever happens to happen. This keeps his work authentic and allows him to express himself when words will not do. The intention of his work is to provoke thought from viewers, spark emotion, and embrace nonconformity.
