Evans studied at Central School of Arts & Crafts under Keith Vaughan. His early work, including studies in pen and ink and work in photo montage, has only recently come to light. In his draughtsmanship there are clear generational influences, from Keith Vaughan (1912-1977), to Peter Blake (b.1932), David Hockney (b.1937), Alan Reynolds (1926-2014), Lucian Freud (1922-2011), and Eduardo Paolozzi (1924-2005).
