MATTHEW EVANS spent close to a decade making indie/pop/punk/folk/noise in a band called The Others before turning his attention to art in the mid 1990ʼs. In the fall of 2008, he returned from 5 years in Japan to his native Canada to complete a Masters degree in Art Education at Concordia University. He remains committed to his practice out of an intuitive faith in nonsense, as an open ended and discursive space where important questions may freely emerge in a way that fosters new modes of understanding and empathy. He has exhibited and screened his work internationally including shows in Japan, UK, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Mexico, China, Korea, and Hong Kong. He currently lives in Montreal where he works as a medical illustrator and is co-director of Residency For Artists On Hiatus.
