Artist Bio:
Evan Bieder is a third generation painter from Norwalk and Fairfield, Connecticut. His grandmother, Bonnie Bieder, managed Lionheart Gallery in Bedford, New York and was a landscape painter. His father, Erik Bieder, is an art teacher in Stamford, CT and an abstract painter.

Evan has been painting for five years. He began making abstract paintings with warm colors and now paints impressionist landscapes. Evan graduated from Wesleyan University with a degree in government in 2015. He recently worked as a teacher and coach in Gaston, North Carolina and Boston, Massachusetts. Evan also likes drawing, photography, fashion, film, running, lifting, and reading. His favorite baseball team is the New York Mets.

Gallery Showing:
'Sunday Morning' is a collection of impressionist landscape paintings, colorful drawings, and polaroid photos by Evan Bieder. Evan's painting emphasizes the importance of color pallette. He originally used mainly yellows, oranges, pinks, whites, and blues. Now he paints primarily with greens, oranges, and yellows. Bieder's drawings utilize a similar pallette. The photos include portraits of self, friends, and trees and the abstract interaction between light and dark.
