Evilution is a showcase of Bordalo II’s own evolution as an artist over the last decade. In keeping with the strong environmental message that has underpinned his career, every artwork on display has been created entirely from objects that have been thrown away, salvaged by the artist and his team.
Artur Bordalo (Lisbon, 1987) uses the artist name Bordalo II, which he chose as a tribute to his grandfather, the painter Real Bordalo, in order to promote a continuity and reinvention of his artistic legacy.
EVILUTION is a kind of retrospective of everything I’ve been doing over the last 10 years, and also a way of looking towards the future. I don’t want to become a one-trick pony; I want to evolve and let my work evolve with me.
