Originally from a small village called Blewbury in Oxfordshire, moved to Scotland in 1999 to study Sculpture at Edinburgh College of Art. Today Will works mostly with bars and clubs in Edinburgh creating one off installation works of art which varies from simple signage and chalkboards to full wall murals and sculptures. He also creates custom fit furnishings and lighting in a wide variety of different materials.
“when it comes to my commercial work I feel I am able to work in many different styles, always choosing what works best for the client and venue”
As well as working commercially Will is still an exhibiting fine Artist with many exhibitions locally and internationally under his belt. Over the years the focus of his work has changed many times however an underlying constant always remains. That is his love of working with varied materials and partnering them together in the most aesthetic manner, he says
“I like to keep materials raw, as much as i can , rusted metal and broken concrete has its own beauty sometimes”
Will McEvoy is also an accomplished airbrush artist (using a air powered brush to spray paint onto a surface). Originally self taught and creating portraits of Hollywood icons ( the origins of this site) he later moved onto motorcycle kustom painting and burlesque portraiture.
“I am a huge fan of kustom work and the culture around it from tattoos, choppers, low-brow art to burlesque and cabaret shows”
