Artist Jim Evans aka TAZ, began his career in the San Francisco underground rock scene. His art has appeared in comics, on album covers, rock and film posters, and has been featured in numerous books. He has expanded his work through fine art, limited editions, and gallery shows, and most recently street art and murals. Evans is the founder of the TAZ collective, which has done posters for groups like the Foo Fighters, U2, Oasis, Anderson Paak, Green Day, Pearl Jam, The Beastie Boys, Ramones, Rage Against The Machine, Wu Tang Clan, Metallica, Nine Inch Nails, and Blink-182. TAZ has also done a number of high-profile album jackets for The Beastie Boys, Beck, Aerosmith, House of Pain, and Neil Young. Evans / TAZ work has been exhibited in galleries worldwide.
