Christian Evers | cEversWorks

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's 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's life came during a profound life crisis he faced in 2007/09. It was during this time 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, giving 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, which was 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 relationship with his clients. While he tends to maintain a more private presence, he occasionally shares his creations with a select audience through private exhibitions that take place at regular intervals. These intimate gatherings provide a glimpse into the inner world of an artist who has found a harmony between the trials of life, Zen practice and the expressive power of his dynamic yet tranquil paintings.
