Jake Wood-Evans received a BA from Falmouth University, England, and currently lives in Brighton.
With his oil paintings, he seeks to mix classical and contemporary influences in his paintings. They range from small, sensitive studies to large-scale canvasses.
His influences range from the baroque artists to Richter and Bacon. With his loose, instinctive method, he creates dark, ethereal works that are intended to capture the imagination and invoke emotion.
During his studies, Wood-Evans was awarded a scholarship from the Royal Academy for classical study at the Prado museum. Later, his school awarded him a won a Most Promising Graduate accolade.
His work has been exhibited in the UK.
