Evans & Brown
Mark Evans and Charley Brown have been the go-to source for architects and designers in San Francisco seeking one-of-a-kind statement murals to distinguish grand spaces. It was not a giant step from painting murals to making wallcoverings, originally by hand but soon by manufacturer. Evans & Brown’s innovative designs draw, like their murals, both on their deep knowledge of a variety of artistic traditions and an instinct for capturing the modern eye. Some evoke classical decorative flourishes — medallions, damasks, lattices — others are more abstract and textured. In recent years, they’ve added mural-like digital imagery to the repertory, which offers designers some of the flexibility and range of commissioned work. The digital images can be scaled by buyers’ designers and “printed to fit,” compared to the standard-size rolls of traditional wallcoverings.
