Early in his career Evans showed photo-montages at fashionable London restaurants such as Gallery One and gained several commissions. These included a design for the Hollywood Room in the Observer Film Exhibition, 1956, and a mural for the Soup Kitchen, Knightsbridge. Until recently Evans early work remained unrecorded - its rediscovery allows for a fuller understanding of his development as an artist.
