About Choose your Way

Choose your way creates multiple associations – from eastern religions, as seen in the pose of the main and only character, to pop culture references, Homer Simpson being the Buddha, to even psychedelic drug effects and its physical form, the background reminiscent of an LSD sheet. This is a work with fun outlook yet deep symbolic meaning – choose the way in which you feel liberated, the choices are unlimited and differ from individual to individual, making this work an embodiment of different life paths and their coexistence.

Paulius Arlauskas

The painter is highly versatile and capable of creating create various arts, including painting, graphics, music, performances, video or writing. One of the most significant attributes of P. Arlauskas’s paintings is symbolism. Even the smallest components like colors or clothes patters of portraying figures are profoundly measured and have their meanings.  The painting manner is very detailed, precise and decorative so that compositions look like endless ornaments.

Arlauskas’s art have links with traditional Japanese prints (shunga) where nudity and highly erotic fantasies are astonishing and breathtaking.
