Art historian Inga Steimane’s monograph is devoted to a vivid member of the young generation of artists of the nineties, who died young, but whose personality left a significant impression on his contemporaries. The 1990s saw the development of a second generation of conceptualists in Latvian art, directly influenced by Janis Vinkelis. The book traces the artist’s biography and the conceptual turning-points in his creative development, with an extensive characterisation of the time in which he worked.
