About the author
Donara Manukian is a young and driven artist from Kaunas.
Donara has a distinct style, her brushstrokes are loose and her work is sto professional it makes one doubt her age.
The artist's favourite subject is a man, his self-expression and subtle nudity. The artist's gaze is open, not always comfortable, but always giving a priority to what is real. Through the portrait, the image of a person, the aim is to convey his inner state as deeply as possible.
In order to reveal her thoughts, the artist uses a rather narrow colour palette and tries to use every possible shade, contrast of white and black, warm but not sweet tones, creating an atmosphere of intimate twilight. This only makes her work all the more impressive.
