Clean, cold and solid - metal is the preferred material of David Evison. He sculpts with static and aesthetic precision. Diffused and twisted shapes dynamically reach out into the surrounding space.

Born 1944 in Guangzhou, China, he began his career directly after finishing his studies. Evison took part in Prospect 68 at Kunsthalle Düsseldorf - the first alternative, collective Düsseldorfer exhibition of influential artists presenting an international perspective on art in avant-garde galleries. Prospect 68, 69 und 71 were particularly influential and representative of contemporary artistic tendencies of that period, with other participants including Marcel Broodthaers, Joseph Beuys and Peter Blake.

Evison's teaching career extends over 45 years; he has held numerous prestigious teaching positions and professorships through which he continues to influence and work alongside new generations of artists.
