An artist and graphic designer who has become known largely through the skateboarding subculture, Evan Hecox has produced hundreds of skateboard graphics since 1997. He has also emerged as a fine artist, with solo and group shows around the world. His works depict city scenes or isolated elements that are almost cinematic in their stark contrast and abstraction. Hecox is fascinated with the complexity of the urban landscape, and with people from mundane surroundings that one would normally overlook. His stylistic approach is based on the process of amplification as it affects form and color, breaking down the image, removing elements and emphasizing others. His first monograph is an extensive catalog of his paintings, drawings, and installation photographs, dating back as early as 1994. The handmade quality of Hecox's work resonates in the 32 pages dedicated to his linoleum block prints, which are reproduced as if they were painted by the artist himself. Hardcover, color.
