BIO

Hailing from the swamps and tundra of Milwaukee Wisconsin, Evan Ross

Murphy's works reflect symbolic discovery and mastery of diverse

theoretical landscapes. Envisioning frontier worlds where primitive skill

sets are still needed, and are won from native guides and hardship. 

With a style informed by his own gathering of these skills, his works, from

painting's and sculpture, to music and film act as a map for adventuring

through his,  and our world.

Currently Living and Working as an Art Director in Los Angeles California.
