Born from the desire to see his creations on the street, Evan has been working on a line of kicks.
Garnering media attention for his interpretive portraits and dreamy nostalgic landscapes, Evan Sharma is experimenting with new mediums for his art. His first pair of sneakers, called the RBLB – or Right Brain/Left Brain, brings Evan’s concept to life that, “to be a whole person, you have to use both your right or creative brain and your left or analytical side.”
Each RBLB pair is based on Evan’s vibrant portraits of famed New York based neo-expressionist artist, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Nobel prize-winning physicist, Albert Einstein, which are printed on a retro high top converse sneaker.
Each pair also features original artwork and a signature ES patch.
Evan Sharma is a fauvist artist who first received national acclaim when, at 12 years old, his work was shown at Toronto’s Artist Project. His paintings have drawn comparisons to those of Basquiat, Condo and Picasso, and have been acquired by collectors from New York, L.A. and Dubai. Evan recently launched the RBLB (Right Brain/Left Brain) brand of sneakers to help drive home the idea that to maximize your potential, you have to use both your artistic and logical brain. Evan has also raised over $35,000 for various charities, inclining the United Way and athletes who will be attending the 2020 Olympics.
