The Real Evie J

Evelyn Jean is a multi-media artist from London.

Jean has a passion for making art that captures his innermost fears and pleasures, whilst questioning the actual purpose of these emotions.

Bio

The beginnings of Evelyn Jean the visual artist began after a music career spanning 12 years, he became increasingly frustrated at the limits of the medium and began practicing visual art as a method for a new way of performance and true expression of his real feelings.

In doing this Jean seeks to create art that speaks to the soul and to attract a different kind of audience to his work.

His work covers many mediums including, painting; filmmaking; literature; music;  performance, and installation.

Jean is a self-taught artist who has been participating in a growing number of shows and aspires to create an emotional understanding over technical superiority in his work.

Statement

"I am distracted by human behaviour and how we really feel about ourselves underneath the veil.

I see life and art being played out like a film script with more control over it than we realise. The ability to rewrite every scene.

I feel rewarded by the emotion and distracted by the aesthetic and I will accept understanding and feeling the meaning in a piece, over the admiration of technical brilliance.

 I am attracted to various art movements of the past but do not belong to or aspire to any."
