Evan Kitson

Visit Website

A draftsman, painter, instructor, emerging anatomist, curator, collector, and all around art-obsessed thirty-something, Evan Kitson splits his time between Lancaster, PA were he maintains a lively studio practice working with deceased subjects, and New York, NY where he exhibits, instructs, and haunts museums. Kitson earned his BFA in Illustration from the Pennsylvania College of Art & Design, his MFA from the New York Academy of Art, has held a number of studio assistantships, notably working with Odd Nerdrum, and continues to supplement his ongoing education by taking workshops whenever he finds a rare free moment. Evan has taught in many institutions, including The Art Student's League of New York, The Pennsylvania College of Art & Design, The Janus Collaborative School of Art, The New York Academy of Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Harrisburg Area Community College, and Cadaver Labs whenever possible. He's given talks at Millersville University, Booth Gallery, Grand Central Atelier, Parsons School of Design, and really to anybody who will listen, or even just in ear-shot. His work can be found in private collections across the U.S, and in regular exhibits in both the Lancaser, PA region as well as in New York City, most recently at Booth Gallery and Sugarlift.
