2017 Featured Artist
Ever Galvez is a fine artist, classically trained in painting, drawing, sculpture and traditional animation. He is known most prominently for his award winning Chalk Street Painting talents. He began his journey enriched by the vibrant colors of Mexico and eventually the multicultural influences of Southern California. Through his art, he shares an interpretation of colors that goes beyond what the naked eye can see in all that surrounds him. He combines this with his deep respect for the traditional arts and artists like Alphonse Mucha, Lorenzo Bernini, J.C. Leyendecker, William A. Bouguereau, Caravaggio, and Michelangelo among others. In doing so, he creates a form of realism that he believes brings a subject's true colors and emotions to the surface for all to experience.
"The true colors of an object is the interpretation of our own experiences in life. My surroundings made me achieve those experiences through the years. Through art, I can capture a moment in time and transform and express it for everyone to see."
At the heart of all his work, is a desire to help people through creativity. Street Painting, in particular, has allowed him to fulfill this desire. Ever travels year round nationally and internationally to paint at large festivals, Private Events and often supporting philanthropic causes giving back to the community. He also has teach workshops to the youths, in addition to working with clients on commercial projects. Ever’s commercial work includes large scale 3D paintings, traditional murals and portraits, concept designs and character maquettes for companies, studios and private commissions.
