Evoca1, is a figurative painter, street artist and designer based in Miami, Florida. Evoca1 has been an artist his whole life. Born in Dominican Republic, he spent his childhood drawing and painting on walls, until moving to Florida at age 11. He taught himself how to mix shades and paint with oil, acrylic, latex and spray paint. Evoca1 uses most his inspiration from mankind’s constant fight to excel. In late 2010, Evoca1 established the Sketches For Mankind Project: a humanitarian effort dedicated to feeding 100+ homeless people in Downtown Miami, on the 3rd Sunday of every month.
Evoca1 is currently living and working in Miami, where he continues to develop his craft and design, touring across the world sharing his art via his murals.
