Minnie Eva Evans



Comment if you know another artist that can produce fine art using crayons?

Minnie Evans was notorious for drawing with anything on hand, including discarded window shades, book bindings, scrap paper. She also favored the use of Crayola crayons as she said “they are the best.” Come on @crayola !

Minnie Eva Evans was an African American artist who worked in the United States from the 1940s to the 1980s. Evans used different types of media in her work such as oils and graphite, but started with using wax and crayon. She was inspired to start drawing due to visions and dreams that she had all throughout her life. She is known as a southern folk artist and as a surrealist and visionary artist as well.

Now recognized as one of the most important visionary folk artists of the 20th century, her work is highly collected by many museums and collectors worldwide.

Did you know that she “had a show at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1975?”

Her work can be viewed at the Museum of Modern Art, the Smithsonian Institution, the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, the American Folk Art Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, and the High Museum of Art.

artanddesigninspiration.com, Evans’ art [has] African roots, strong religious convictions, and visual knowledge of historical art and culture including Persian and Oriental.Her designs are complex, with elements recalling the art of China and the Caribbean combined with more Western themes...
