The EVOL 'Repeat Offender' collection features architectural illusion motifs on the unsuspecting surface of used cardboard. The artist uses a stencilling technique to obtain a precise and structural look, while layering upon the spontaneous surface of found metal and old box pieces. The weathered appearance of the paintings is meant to make a bold statement on the condition of low-income housing in Berlin. The series also features photographic works of an installation in an old slaughter house, Caspar David Friedrich Stadt.

The Berlin-based artist is drawn to unclean surfaces, seeking the character and emotionally driven textures of objects. The feeling of fleeting existence and the process of memory is the basis behind painting over tattered fragments of cardboard boxes. The charm and mystery of the end of an existence and transition is dynamic.
