More about this artwork

The painting presents a vibrant street scene, possibly set on a chilly autumn day judging by the scattering of golden leaves above and the manner of dress among the figures shown. This scene captures a busy Parisian café, with its exterior vivid in red and adorned with signs, likely the Café Tabac de la Sorbonne. There are several people seated outside under a canopy, enjoying their coffee and company.The street itself is animated with a variety of pedestrians, each rendered in swift, fluid strokes that convey movement and the bustle typical of an urban setting. The light seems to play a crucial role in this painting, casting dynamic shadows and bathing the scene in a warm, inviting glow, which contrasts with the cooler tones of the sky above. A notable architectural structure peaks at the top left, adding a sense of depth and context to the location.Foreground figures are depicted in a more abstract manner; their forms are suggested rather than detailed, focusing more on the interplay of light and color than on individual identities. The artwork's elongated vertical composition directs the viewer's eye along the path of the street, inviting one to wander through this Parisian snapshot.

Although Dmitrij Zuj is a watercolour painter, drawing plays a large role in his work. Whether it's the rooftops of the city, fields in bloom, or the rolling dunes, the artist not only masterfully arranges the composition, but also draws each leaf or roof tile. These works are particularly fascinating for their detail - the longer you look, the more you see. The artist is very fond of depicting cities, including his native Vilnius, but he is always looking for new angles that no one has noticed yet, and his gaze is always romantic and looking for beauty.

The artist introduces himself: "I was born and grew up in Vilnius, in an artist's family. Although I have been surrounded by art and creativity since childhood, I did not choose this path myself. For a long time I worked in the advertising field - urban design, brands, and was interested in interior and landscape design. But painting has always been a hobby.

The first technique I tried was pastel. Later, watercolour caught my attention and has remained the main technique I use ever since. I am constantly interested in new applications of this technique, and I continue to learn on my own from my friends and foreign watercolour masters.

I travel a lot in Lithuania and abroad. I admire the sights of the cities and places I see, and the impressions I experience are put down on paper.

I am proud that my works have been acquired by private collectors from Italy, France, Portugal, Germany, Russia, Poland, etc.

I will be delighted if my work finds a place in your home."
