Evan Sebastian Lagache
Evan Sebastian Lagache is an abstract-futuristic artist based in New York City. His work captures the essence of the gridded metropolis, in all of its twists and turns.
His process evolves like a visual symphony, directed by the creator and orchestrated by manipulating contrasting mediums; Acrylic, Oil, Ink, Graphite, and Collage.
His colors, inspired by the energy of the city. From the bustling of subway tracks, to the sound of a Jazz band in the park, the ever-changing streets never cease to spark creativity for this emerging artist.
Lagache is not only an abstract artist, but also a curator of his own style of art which he titles "Abpsyche" or "Abpsychism" which is his own form of Abstract Psychedelic Expressionism.

From this inspiration, Evan began collecting material from the street -- doors, windows, skateboards, and tables which became his basis for art design.
