Evana brings World Art Drop Day to Magherafelt
Evana took part in a novel initiative designed to connect the world with art recently. World Art Drop Day, conceived by US illustrator Jake Parker, saw thousands of sculptors, animators and fine artists ‘drop’ a piece of their art in a public place, allowing whoever found their creation to take it home for free. Evana placed her latest creation, an original chalk pastel portrait of the late comedy actor Robin Williams, in the middle of Magherafelt town centre, causing quite a stir. Karen McCann from Magherafelt was the lucky member of the public who stumbled upon it first, and was delighted to have won such a striking Evana Bjourson original.
Although working mainly on private commissions, Evana’s recent depictions of famous figures from the world of film and literature have sparked interest in her work among the wider art market.
Force behind the initiative Jake Parker said, “The world needs this right now. We need to feel a little more connection to each other and there’s nothing like the bond two random strangers can make through the act of creating and giving.”
