12.6" x 12.6" (32 cm x 32 cm) oil on canvas
"Abstract, spontaneous, rich in texture, these paintings reflect my impetus of positive thinking and intention behind them. Inspired by old frescoes, mossy stones, and time passing, I admire the natural and imperfect in life."
The artist is influenced by Antoni Tàpies, Cy Twombly, Jackson Pollock, Jean-Michel Basquiat, ancient Japanese ink painting
Vigintas Stankus started his career in the early 90's. To the date, the artist has carried out more than 80 solo and group exhibitions in Lithuania and abroad (France, Germany, USA, Spain, Norway, Netherlands, etc.). His paintings have traveled to collectors from South Korea, USA, Italy, France, Holland, Norway, UK etc.
Mainly abstract, Vigintas' work is spontaneous and rich in texture. His abstractions leave the space for imagination. Since the very beginning, the style and media, colors and rhythm of his canvases went through many incarnations allowing him to grow while continuing to search for the new forms of abstraction. The attached paintings are from the latest creative period, made through experiments with ashes and oil paints to reach a maximum feeling of nature.
