About the author
You are just a pen in the hands of the Creator, drawing the line of your life on a piece of white and sometimes grey paper. It is mostly what you can't see with your eyes, but we are all full of it: experiences, survival, discoveries, wonder, beliefs, ideals, mistakes... and finally the radiance and peace of God himself. Because only when you are calm and open can you truly create. To create a picture, to create a life, to create and re-create your own heart and the heart of another. This is the great mystery and miracle that has befallen us because we are already born, already living.
Maybe it would be enough just to live, so why am I still painting?
Probably because of the time that stops when I open the ink bottle, grip the pen tightly, and my hand seems to float by itself, tracing light lines one after the other. Then I can only watch the birth of something new, but at the same time already familiar. Your drawing does not allow you to escape, to invade alien territories, but when you cannot be different, you simply learn to enjoy what is born from your hands. Once it is born, it is no longer just yours. It is just a matter of letting go.
I have been drawing since I was very young, I graduated from the Alytus School of Fine Arts, I chose the speciality of an architect, I got a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in architecture from VGTU. In 2002-2009 I contributed to the publication of the magazine "Naujas namas", where I worked as editor-in-chief. Currently I live and work in Vilnius. For drawing I mostly use coloured ink, pen and brush.
