Gareth Evans

Gareth Evans (aka The Trunk of Funk) is based in Macclesfield and describes himself as an artiste and ‘maker’. His passion is the creative process of creating either an artwork or a physical working object from quality materials whether it be wood, leather or a fine art paper. A repetitive theme in his work is the fusion of the old with the new whether it be a William Morris textile design on a butterfly or streaming music from a 70 year old Globetrotter suitcase!

His ‘physical’ works include portable Bluetooth speakers created from Vintage suitcases and audio. and timepieces with a contemporary but still retro feel from tired mid century clocks.

To date his artworks - including the series ‘My Father’s Books’ - have appeared in exhibitions in London, Yorkshire, Cheshire, Derbyshire, Wales and Greater Manchester. ‘BULL!’ the latest series have launched in Knutsford’s Vermilion and from there will venture further afield.

Gareth’s physical and visual work to date has appeared in magazines in the USA and UK.
