Jaan is an artist. He imagines and draws and paints and pastes and sketches and moulds and photographs and films and thinks and builds and assembles. Jaan believes that having a good idea is the most important part of making art. There are all kinds of ideas, just like there are all kinds of art. Sometimes, art can be a game or a riddle or finding and recognizing. Art is telling stories with pictures. Art is surprise. What kind of art do you love? What kind of art do you like to do?
