More about this artwork

The painting captures a bustling suburban landscape, characterized by a mix of architectural styles. On the left, there are modern buildings with clean lines and large windows, standing tall behind a scene of more traditional, rustic homes. These older homes, rendered with warm wooden textures, evoke a sense of quaint, lived-in charm, each separated by fences and small garden patches that hint at a close-knit community. Leafless trees, possibly indicating autumn or winter, are detailed meticulously, creating a tangled web of branches that add a natural contrast to the human-made structures. A street runs through the scene, busy with cars that suggest the daily rhythm of life in this area. The lively, yet slightly overcast sky complements the serene and somewhat nostalgic ambiance of a suburb gently embracing modernity while retaining its historical roots.

Artist
Gilles Vuillard (1970) is a film director, composer and painter, originally from France but currently based in Berlin and Kaunas.
Gilles Vuillard (Gilles Vuillard) settled in Kaunas in 2001, where he became fascinated by the old wooden houses of Žaliakalnis, because the artist had never seen such wooden buildings, pre-war villas with turrets, balconies, verandas, or just simple one-storey houses with mezzanines, spacious two-storey wooden houses. Some of them are pretty and well maintained, some of them more on the shabby side, but they have not lost their cosy charm, which is particularly evident in the impressionistic paintings by the French artist.
The artist reveals that the real hero of the paintings is Max the dog, who can be found in almost every painting. After Max's death, the painter never painted Zaliakalnis again, and this period of his work came to an end.
Gilles Vuillard is currently working on poetic, experimental films using analogue cameras.
He also composes music for other directors' films.
