"Baltimore Arabbers Series #10" by Burford Evans
18 x 24 inches acrylic on canvas -- unframed
Burford Elonzo Evans, was born and raised in Golinda, Texas in 1936. Mr Evans interest in art began at age six. His parents became concerned when art was not replaced by fishing or football. “The older I got the more I painted, and the more they discouraged me.” Their dream was for me to become a teacher or a doctor and to make a good living and that wasn’t a bad dream either, but it just wasn’t right for me. Evans says though they opposed his passion for painting, Evans’ parents provided him with the only formal art instruction he ever received a $25 course from the local YMCA.  He has sustained a visionary presence throughout his art career and says that he believes and lives by what he learned during his five years of artistic studies (1950-55) at the Universite de Paris a la Sorbonne and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts.
After Evans graduated from high school in Waco, TX. in 1949, he joined the Air Force. He served in Paris, France, as a medical technician. During that period he “watched an artist named Bernard Buffet”. After his tour of duty in the service Evans enrolled in Texas Southern University, where he furthered his interest in medical technology by majoring in biology. He also attended the Commonwealth College of Science for laboratory technique.
