BIOGRAPHY AND SELECTED HONORS

Kevin McEvoy grew up on Long Island, NY, where as a boy the passion for art was ignited, and he began his earliest studies in drawing and painting by copying Albrecht Durer’s etchings from an encyclopedia, and producing drawing copies of Greek and Roman statuary at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. After high school, he later studied in Valparaiso, Chile. In 2008, Kevin enrolled as a student at the prestigious, world renowned Charles Cecil Studios in Florence, the oldest active atelier in Europe. After several years of training in classical drawing, painting, and art history, Kevin returned home to Long Island where he began his professional career in drawing and painting. With his works in collections from South America to California to Europe, Kevin enjoys connecting with collectors and clients of all backgrounds. Having run and directed both private and non profit studios over the period of twelve years, Kevin also developed a love for the development of community. Between drawing and painting, offering various art history lectures, teaching studio classes, and offering international education via his unique, online art educational programming, Kevin enjoys spending time sailing with his wife and three boys in their hometown of Islip, and tending to their seventeen chickens.

Kevin’s paintings draw on the classical methods he acquired in Florence, and are applied in a contemporary context to the world around him. Interested in the sublime that is to be found in the mundane, his paintings speak to us in common terms, the poetry of everyday life.
