More about this artwork

In this monochromatic painting, the artist has depicted a stark contrast between a surreal, large bird figure and a realistic human portrait. The bird, whose form appears both simplified and abstract, is completely painted in a smooth, light tone and has an eye and mouth that are prominently detailed. Its curved, gaping beak surrounds the human figure. The upper body and head of a man emerge from the bottom center of the composition. His face exhibits a neutral expression and he faces forward, looking directly at the viewer. The man's hair and features are meticulously detailed, enhancing the realism in contrast to the simplicity of the bird. A small, dark spherical shape floats above the bird, adding to the surreal quality of the scene. The background is uniformly dark, highlighting the figures in the foreground, and accentuating the play of light and shadows.

I am an artist from the village of Pavartyčiai, at Radviliškis district, Lithuania. At the moment I am living and creating in the city of Kaunas. My carrier as an artist started after my bachelor's studies, at Šiauliai University, Faculty of Arts, which I graduated in 2005.

I fell in love with dry pastels and pastel pencils, when I was an art student, and I use them to this day. All my drawings are made on a black sheet of paper, and drawing on a black background is special, because you create a light on it, instead of shadows.

Sometimes I feel like a wizard, who can create light in the darkness. I create so many stories about birds, about people, about the sun and the entire galaxies on a black sheet of paper.
