Evan Roth is a Parisian artist and researcher who explores the relationship between free culture and pop culture. His work explores the dynamics of the human relationship with their surroundings and the often-ignored interactions between the two. Roth co-founded the Graffiti Research Lab and the Free Art & Technology Lab. Roth has even collaborated with Jay-Z on an open source music video.

Roth's exhibition 'Welcome to Detroit' or 'Propulsion Paintings' reviews the action of art and the consideration of environment. The exhibit follows Roth and his students as they render varying movement pieces with the energy and momentum of fixed cans of spray paint. Each installment is viewed with varying reaction, interpreted by third party viewers.

Evan Roth applies his knowledge of hacker's philosophy to the exhibition, evoking a wider consideration of environmental surroundings.
