Zach Yarrington, based out of Portland, Oregon, sits at the intersection of hand-painted signage, punk lyrics, and universal goodwill. He often combines such aesthetics and sensibilities with a single earnest word or short phrase, painted large in a highly visible public space. For SODO Track and its theme of motion, Zach created a play on the word “evolve,” which comes from the Latin evolvere, which means to roll or unfold. In EVLOVE, Zach offers a message of progression for both directions of transit: evolve and love. “Love is the light in the darkness,” he says. “Even though we are living in what can sometimes seem like insurmountable odds, we can progress together.”
