evo love

Evo Love, born Yvonne Grams in New York, is a multi-media artist who dedicates her life to making unique altar like creations. Growing up in Daytona Beach and Miami, she has always been influenced by surfing, skateboarding and street culture. Her work communicates a nostalgic innocence taking both artist and viewer on a journey back to their childhood. By methodically placing found objects, each piece informs the viewer of a narrative specific to a theme. Love leaves it up to the viewer to decipher the story. Discarded vintage items and a wide array of found objects are appropriated and converted into a complex and highly personal symbolic language investigating subjects, which range from her Latin and American Indian heritage, her interests in magic, games, strategy, love, culture and history.
