Evan Sharma is a multidisciplinary artist working at the intersection of art and science.
At the young age of twelve, Sharma was selected to exhibit at The Artist Project, a well-regarded contemporary art fair in Canada, as the youngest artist to ever exhibit there. Now, as an award-winning researcher and STEM major at Queen’s University, his time in the lab serves as inspiration for his art. He also hosts the first artist-run Snapchat channel and uses his platform to educate and rally folks worldwide around climate change. Sharma has been called one of Canada’s most talented young artists by Nuvo magazine, one of Toronto’s best artists by Toronto Life, and one of 5 youths worldwide who are affecting social change (along with Greta Thunberg and Mala Yousafzai). His work is being acquired by collectors in NYC, LA, London, and Dubai. Sharma’s artistic process centers around the idea that we can predict the future we want to see – we all have a choice. His art is often manifested through a hands-on lens of altruism. During COVID-19, his non-profit Covart gathered the work of artists all over the world to be auctioned off, providing over 140,000 meals for Kenyan children whose education was affected by pandemic-related food insecurity.
