The visual poetry of Mark Evans and Charley Brown harkens back to traditions that began in the Renaissance.
A vernacular borrowed from the Italians.
Whimsically invoking an earlier age.
An approach to the essence of art.
A range of decorative traditions.
Artists in their own right, each with a solo career, working together Mark Evans and Charley Brown are known for turning flat walls into theatrical productions of kinetic energy, pulsing color and fascinating rhythms. On occasion, a latter-day Medici commissions them to create sensations for private enjoyment in a residence. The barons of palatial resorts around the globe regularly turn to them for signature creations to grace a foyer, a ballroom, or a particularly luxurious restaurant. And through collaborations with leading manufacturers they create dazzling, affordable wallcoverings for commercial, hospitality and residential environments.
“For several decades Mark Evans and Charley Brown have been the great open secret of my professional career,” says Roger Thomas of Wynn Resorts. “They are the ‘Ahhh!’ in my environments, the most memorable moments in rooms built to create indelible memories.”
Mark and Charley delight in creating imagery in a range of styles, as they have said, “from Rococo to Rothko.” Masters of trompe l’oeil and other time-tested artistic techniques, Evans & Brown designs for wallcoverings, digitally-printed wall murals and wallpaper imbue modern materials with the richness of the ages. Patterns, textures and panoramic imagery make of common materials uncommon and surprisingly practical ways for an interior space of any dimension take on new life.
