Ben Evans grew up working for his father, sculptor Phill Evans, on various large scale installations and projects around the Western United States. Learning to use a wide variety of both natural and refined materials Ben’s early art education is rooted in his father’s artistic values, an appreciation for the wonders of nature both as muse and resource. Ben received his B.A. from UCLA in 1997, and has been honored to work for the Art Department there since his graduation. From his time in Los Angeles Ben has gained a broader sense of what art can do and the rich possibilities of what can still be explored.  In addition to private commissions, Ben has exhibited work in various group exhibitions around California.
