Today’s Artist Spotlight shines on Evan Shinners! Harlem Arts Festival caught up with the artist and learned he is an architect of Bach…
How would you describe your art to someone who was hearing about you for the first time?
i am an architect of bach & a narrator of the modern american artistic vagabond lifestyle.
Where should HAF readers go to learn more about your art/work?
for the timid: read my tweets thoroughly and watch my youtube videos. for the adventurous: read my poetry. for the bravest: come to the best NEW CULL party. (((also search “evan plays seven” on spotify)))
What do you hope to gain by performing in the Harlem Arts Festival?
i hope to gain nothing- that is i do not hope to gain things- i have all I need already, which is no things.
Where’s your favorite place to eat, play or shop in Harlem?
i love the way victor makes al pastor for me at ‘el aguila’ at 103rd & lex. shout out to my super evodio, troy the boombox man & all the neighbors in east harlem who put up with bach into the wee hours of night. andrea, i love you; rachel, call me.
