About artist - painter
Nerius Vaitkus

I am an artist - painter based in Lithuania whose paintings have been exhibited nationally and in Germany. I describe my imagery as not being metaphoric, it is the visualization of the thought process through my visual language and colors, which leads to the deeper layers of myself. My distinctive abstractions are most often created with oils, acrylics, pastels, and collage.

Story of Nerius' 

I was born in the late 60s' in Kaunas, Lithuania. I graduated from the University of Siauliai, the faculty of arts.

A few years after the studies I spent working with stained glass. Later on, life led me to the world of business, however, the painting was always in my mind as my biggest passion.

That’s why after a gap of many years, I finally got back to it and started presenting my first artworks.

I paint ordinary things, buildings, places, abstract, expressive..., but from a different perspective and view angle. The paintings represent nostalgia and the vibrancy of colors gives you the ability to see and feel the world in your own way. That is exactly what I want to tell and show people.

Realization of my thoughts, moods, colors, and decisions - That’s the Art of my life.

"There is more variety in search and discovery on canvas, in terms of “who I am,” “who you are,” what our relationship is with each other and with the environment. The combination of abstract pictorial language and a subjective, somewhat surreal narrative creates a unique world of Vaitkus, in which more spacious possibilities of inner experiences open up. For the viewer experience as well."
