Evaldas Jansas - one of the top contemporary Lithuanian artists - started his career in an independent Lithuania together with other pioneers of Lithuanian contemporary art of the 1990s. He developed a unique inter-genre and interdisciplinary creative style. Lately he has chosen a divergent and expressive approach in his paintings (both in terms of contents and manner of expression). The majority of his works focus on problematic aspects of contemporary human life, question conservative norms and provoke discussion. Since the 1990s the works of Evaldas Jansas have been an essential catalyst of critical self-awareness and self-consciousness in the Lithuanian art scene. The artist has exhibited his works at exhibitions and film reviews in Lithuania and internationally.
