Artist Bio

Evan Thanus is a New York based Multimedia artist, born in 2003. His focus is on Painting, and video pieces. His work is inspired by collective experiences, flaws and perceptions on contemporary American boyhood and manhood in a critical way. Using features and designs inspired by children's media and American cartoons, the figures within Evan’s pieces juxtapose adorable innocence and a deep longing. His characters have large eyes that observe the situations unfolding around them, however they never seem to be in a position of full happiness nor understanding. Combining elements of Pop surrealism, historical painting and internet culture, Evan creates work that contemplates the universal feeling of being vulnerable and confused while giving a friendly and fun reminder to continue observing and learning.
