About / Exhibitions
Evelyn Jean is a multi-media artist from London.
Jean has a passion for making art that captures his inner-most fears and pleasures, whilst questioning the actual purpose of these emotions.
After a music career spanning 12 years, Jean became increasingly frustrated at limits of the medium and began practising art as a method for performance and expression of his real feelings.
His work covers many mediums including painting, filmmaking, performance and installation.
Jean is hugely influenced by a large diverse range of artists from many mediums including Joan Didion, David Bomberg, Paula Rego, Valie Export, Rene Magritte, The Beatles, Joan Jonas, David Bowie, Marlene Dumas and Marina Abramovic to name just a few.
Evelyn is a self-taught artist who has participated in several group shows throughout Europe and aspires to create an emotional understanding as opposed to technical superiority, in his work.
