Evan Tapper

Evan Tapper was born in Winnipeg on a bright sunny morning in May. Mrs. Mendelson, Evan's kindergarten teacher, was quick to recognize his talent. Although it caused a great deal of tension and jealousy among the other 5-year-olds, Mrs. Mendleson called Evan "her little artist". Evan's academic achievements continued as he graduated with a BFA Honours from the School of Art, University of Manitoba and a MFA from the School of Art, Carnegie Mellon University. His multimedia work has been exhibited throughout Canada, the United States, Europe, South America, the Middle East, Australia and Asia. Recent residencies include the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, the Center for Contemporary Art Kitakyushu Japan, and Charles Street Video. He has received grants and awards from such organizations as the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, New York State Council on the Arts, the Manitoba Arts Council, and the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba. Evan has held academic appointments at the State University of New York Fredonia, McMaster University, and Ontario College of Art and Design University.
