Black Box Lunch - Philip John Evett

Phillip John Evett is a British gentleman and fine artist who currently resides and works at his studio in Blanco, Texas. His figurative and sensually abstracted forms have captivated both the San Antonio and international art scenes over a lengthy and accomplished career.

About the Artist:
Philip John Evett was born in Kent, England in 1923. He began his degree in Art Education at Cambridge College of Art in 1938, but left school in 1940 to serve as a member of the Royal Air Force in World War II. After the war, Evett attended Belfast College of Art from 1946 to 1948. After emigrating to the United States in 1954, Evett taught sculpture at the San Antonio Art Institute from 1957 to 1962, later teaching sculpture and drawing at Trinity University from 1962-1987. Evett now serves as Professor Emeritus at Trinity University and works actively in his Blanco, TX studio.
