1972 Berlin, France

Tore Rinkveld aka Evol, is a German artist, born in 1972. He currently lives and works between Berlin, Germany and Moscow, Russia. He completed his education at Kuopio Acadamy of Arts and Crafts, Finland in 2000 and at HFG Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany in 2001.
 

Evol’s artworks, created on found cardboard boxes, celebrate the architecture of an earlier time – the simple Berlin townhouses built around 1910. These ordinary buildings are typical of the neighbourhood the artist has lived in for years – relics of a bygone era that have not yet succumbed to the gentrification sweeping the area. The cardboard provides a rich patina on which to stencil, with existing marks and structures reflecting the passage of time on the walls. The printed graphics, tape and other minute details found on the cardboard also echo the distressed nature and visual pollution of real urban landscapes. In both his studio-based works and his temporary street installations, Evol reduces the environment that surrounds us to bite-sized pieces. Through this reversal of scale, he somehow renders the work harmless: while evoking a stark urban environment, they remain charming and approachable. Drawing on his background in graffiti, he uses his artistic skills to explore the inner workings of the city and makes us look at our surroundings in a new light.
