About the author
A painter, sculptor, wood carver a patriot not only of this region but of the whole Samogitia, a decorator and a nurturer of his hometown - he is known even in Germany, Holland and New York, where his painting exhibitions were successful.
Antanas is always full of interesting ideas, incredibly productive and inventive. He does not need either bohemian adventures or the influence of other artists to unleash his original, multifaceted talent. He draws inspiration from nature and the history of his land.
The surrealistic paintings of A. Adomaitis, which require not only imaginative inclination, but also a perfect mastery of technique, are not lacking in humour and self-irony, which only makes the author's work even more attractive and multi-layered. The author does not shy away from sharp social themes, nor from difficult questions of human existence. And he reveals them wittily and boldly, without any embellishments.
The viewer, who is lucky enough to fall into the phantasmagorical world of A. Adomaitis' works, one is struck by the spectacular play of imagination, the vividness of the brushstroke, the knowledge of the "soul" of wood.
