Ilgvars Zalans, a Latvian painter, has exhibited in the United States and Switzerland. He has also completed several residencies in Asia and South America. Since 2007, Zalans has crossed the globe with his action-painting performances, visiting over 33 countries.
He creates using acrylic on canvas. All of his compositions, whether an object, creature or place, reflect fundamental aspects of the human experience.
I focus on images and motifs that are fundamental, archetypal, and universal in human experience, as opposed to those that are socially determined.
