Marius Jonutis

Marius Jonutis was born in 1965, Vilnius, Lithuania. He graduated from the Vilnius Academy of Arts in 1991. Jonutis is a very productive and comprehensive Lithuanian artist, who masters broad types of art, such as painting, sculpture, graphics, illustration, and relief art. Moreover, Jonutis is constantly questioning the boundaries of art, trying out different tools and seeking unexplored themes. Multiple figure compositions are noticeable for an extraordinary artistic language – vivid and contrasting coloring, the rhythm of ornaments, decorativeness, stylization of shapes and the impression of naïve art.

Every art piece of Jonutis is a complete and separate narrative – a “myth”. Artworks are like the reduced models of the external world, smaller, yet powerful and joyful universes. Laconic sculptures, wooden toys or puppets are entangled into plenty of ornaments and graphic elements. It seems that the artist sees the world through children’s eyes, every detail is so vital, full of childish naivety, vitality, pure faith in goodness and beauty.

Another significant trait of Jonutis’ art is a strong relation with Lithuanian folk culture. As old masters, he contemplates unchanging human values and conveys rustic and traditional fairy tales' images. The characters of artworks are laconic and simplified.

The worldview of Jonutis is ambiguous. On the one hand, he is an idealist, who truly believes in capturing the beauty in art. On the other hand, he is a realist because of his disbelief in the concept of inspiration and muses.
