EVLworld is the brainchild o f visual artist Erni Vales or, Erni Vales Lt d. (EVL). It is the culmination of cons i s ten t mural, design and artwork for over 3 decades. In that time Vales traveled internationally,created sets for celebrities, designed restaurants and nightclubs and is still regarded as one of the world ‘s leading innovators and pioneer s of the graffiti and street art movement.
EVLworld studio in Miami is the current headquarters and the home for his most recent feat , “An Unusual Journey” where he created 13 paintings a month for 13 months, 169 in total, paintings that combine graffiti to pop to poster style i n a colorful blast of color and thought provoking themes and ideas.
Photo s are available on request but EVLworld i s 1 step beyond that. Images of the paintings are available to anyone printed on a wide assortment of merchandise and clothing! Puzzles, coffee mugs , coasters, iphone cases, journals all adorned with Vales’ powerful imagery from his paintings begin the moderately priced merchandise and limited edition prints on aluminum for the more serious art collectors are all made available at EVLworld as we ll as www.evlworld.com
” I wanted to base EVLworld to be like my fellow artist and close friend Keith Haring ‘s Pop Shop. Keith was instrumental in inspiring me and proving that art collectors come in many sizes and shapes as well as different financial brackets.”
In a time where budget cutbacks across the nation continue to erode creativity from our culture and schools, Vales and EVLworld want to bring art, color and creativity back and inspire others to see their own artistic potentials.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
