About Evelina Cole


Evelina Cole is a contemporary abstract artist who exhibits across the U.S. Originally from Europe, her artworks are part of private collections worldwide including the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Denmark, Italy, Portugal, Singapore and South Africa. 

One New York gallery curator described “A Moment from the Spring” as “a triumph of personal expression and imaginative experimentation of technique and texture.” 

Evelina started drawing at a very early age. At the age of eight, she began studies at the national children’s art school “Zografche” in her native country. Her acrylic, watercolor and linoprint works won many national and international awards. 

Evelina moved to the UK in 1992, where she trained in art and graphic design. She later studied fashion photography and stage design before turning to abstract painting. She currently lives and works in Grand Rapids, Michigan. 

Artist Statement

My goal is to create emotive art that defies traditional explanation and that magnifies the imagination of the viewer. I paint using vibrant colors, powerful visceral shapes and expressive lines to explore the astounding moments of life. 

Each painting is a journey of the essence of emotional and physical experience that I display on the canvas using technique, texture and dynamic colors. Through my art, I contextualize the positive elements that lead us to satisfaction, success and an embrace of freedom.
