About Jimi Evins:
Jimi Lee Evins' artworks remind me of looking into a puddle, pond, lake or ocean. Sometimes its cute on the surface but underneath is teaming with motion, images, colors with their own stories. Jimi has exhibited at the CAC, the California African American Museum, Slate Contemporary Gallery, and Canada College.
