Recently a gallery I'm associated with announced an exhibition of art for children. My initial response was that I didn't have anything. I've never created art with kids in mind. Besides, my style doesn't lend itself to children's art.
On second thought, I decided to give it a go. I would try to keep to my style, but select subject matter appealing to kids. The result is this five-painting set of stylized creatures. My hope is that the colors are bright and fun and appealing to children even though they are not the expected primaries we always see in this art.
I'm Evan Stuart Marshall, an abstract painter living and working in Roseland, NJ. I love working art into my daily life.
