"Combining his love for cycling, sustainability, and nature, Evans is particularly fond of creating tree sculptures. The first one he ever made was commissioned as a birthday gift for a customer’s father who worked at a local bike shop. Using scrap metal he found in the trash at the very same shop, Evans put together the impressive 11″ x 15″ tree, featuring a collection of sprockets for the foliage and bike chains for the branches and trunk. Since then, Evans has created many trees in varying sizes and foliage finishes. For example, he cleverly uses bike parts with a warm, golden patina for autumnal leafage."
