Evergreen trees are those which maintain their greenery throughout the seasons. Often living hundreds of years and growing to be some of the tallest on the planet. They are symbolically associated with wisdom, growth, longevity, immortality, enchantment, and serenity in nature. In modern usage, Evergreen is often applied to objects, ideas, and entities that are resilient, relevant, self-renewing, and appealing over time.

This collection of artworks is overall a tribute to African American cultural history and offerings of my imagination. Subjects and concepts that have inspired me. Expressing my creative intentions through my work, I believe I am bringing myself and others closer to the feelings, spirit, and realization of an Evergreen state of mind.

A native of Pittsburgh, Pa. and self-proclaimed New Yorker in exile, David Bruce Graves works and resides in the S.F. East Bay Area.

Society of Illustrators, the August Wilson Center for African American Culture in Pittsburgh, and the Rush Gallery in N.Y.C. among other art venues.
