Christian Evers | "In the Spirit of Zen"

Based on Zen practice, the viewer is invited to immerse themselves in the present moment through the works and experience the delicate balance of timeless stillness and fleeting, living phenomena.

Evers' aim is to capture both aspects of the moment in his paintings in order to create images that are calm despite their dynamism.

His style is a fusion of illustrative, high-contrast comic art and Japanese ink painting, which he studied like a sponge in order to reinterpret them for his artistic expression.

"In the spirit of Zen" aims to encourage the creation of an open space of silence beyond the image, in which contrasts are harmonized.
