„Within the dynamic painting, I try to convey at the same time a resting, silent presence.”

Christian Evers is a contemporary German painter. His art embodies a unique blend of dynamism and serenity. He explores the delicate balance between stillness and movement in his paintings, aiming to convey a calm, quiet presence in the lively strokes of his work.

Evers' artistic style is a captivating fusion of influences, characterized by dynamic illustrative painting techniques that seamlessly blend elements of Japanese ink painting and comic book art. This fusion results in artworks that are not only visually stimulating, but also deeply contemplative.

The transformative turning point in Evers' life came during a profound life crisis he faced in 2007-09. It was then that he discovered Zen, a practice that gave him both access to and release from his inner struggles. Since that pivotal moment, Zen has become an integral and grounding part of his daily life, adding new depth and meaning to his art.

Overcoming this crisis enabled Evers to gain a profound understanding of his own intentions as an artist. His personal path, strongly influenced by Zen principles, led him to traditional Japanese ink painting. Like a sponge, he absorbed the essence of this ancient art form and reinterpreted it in a way that uniquely reflected his own artistic vision.

Christian Evers' artistic focus is primarily on studio work and building a close connection with his clients. While he maintains a more private presence, he occasionally shares his creations with a select audience through private exhibitions held periodically. These intimate gatherings provide a glimpse into the inner world of an artist who has found harmony between life's trials, Zen practice, and the expressive power of his dynamic yet tranquil paintings.

...This meditative perception, the "being in Zen" to represent visually, to "make it experienceable", to remind the viewer of his own inner nature, is the deeper meaning of my works.”
