About the author
The first time Gintaras Gesevičius' works are seen, the same thought comes to everyone's mind - "Like Čiurlionis!". The author is truly inspired by both the works and thoughts of the famous artist. The artist himself says that Čiurlionis' words "I must find the light within myself, so that others, standing in darkness, may see it and find it within themselves and follow the path indicated by God" is his motto, and that the search for this inner light, for inner happiness, is the main theme of his works.
Gintaras Gesevičius says that he does not picture what he sees, but rather what he dreams. His canvases show fantastic landscapes, where you will often see Čiurlionian pyramids and unrecognisable celestial bodies, but here, unlike in Čiurlionis' works, everything is bright, expressive, with more decorative elements. G. Gesevich's works are extremely optimistic, the light he speaks of is reflected in his palette and is often seen in rays of light within the composition itself.
