About the author
Born in 1961, Vidmantas Jažauskas is a graduate of the Vilnius Academy of Arts. In his paintings, viewers will find the fundamental values of painting. The artist, who has been systematically painting in seclusion for many years, avoids the hustle and bustle of exhibitions and does not seek to highlight his personality. Inner warmth, a wide range of emotions, and the uniqueness of each work are important qualities for an artist who seeks to show that the classical traditional manner of painting is not exhausted, and that he has infinite reserves. However, although Vidmantas Jažauskas follows the classical tradition of painting, his paintings are distinguished by their colours, their contrasting combinations and the colour patches used to construct forms. The artist is not so much interested in small, individual details, but in the whole, as if looking at everything from afar and squinting a little. The artist's inspiration usually comes from Lithuanian nature and cities. In the summer, the artist participates in plein-air workshops, works a lot outdoors, and spends his winters in the city, and then we can see the streets of Kaunas or Vilnius on his canvases, but the author prefers the romantic Užupis to everything.
