Vilmantas Marcinkevicius

Born in 1969, Kaunas, Lithuania, Vilmantas Marcinkevicius is one of the most prominent and memorable neo-expressionists not only in Lithuania, but also in North Europe, especially in Denmark.  His artistic style was shaped while studying at Vilnius Academy of Arts during the collapse of the Soviet Union. After finishing his studies, the artist and his works were soon noticed by art collectors from Denmark. Nowadays, his masterpieces are amongst the tops of Danish art market.

What traits of V. Marcinkevicius art distinguish him from others? First of all, the coloring of paintings is unconventional – his colors dare to speak boldly and clearly. Canvases are full of correlation of blue, yellow and green tones. These combinations directly affect viewer's emotions, yet bright paintings do not irritate, but spread optimism and positive energy. Another significant feature of V. Marcinkevicius art is the technique of painting. The artist is inclined to use oil and acrylic paints like watercolour so that canvases look transparent.

The art of V. Marcinkevicius is also famous for its contents. The fundamental subject of his expressive paintings is a human being. Through art, the painter depicts everyday life situations, where some are his personal experiences, whereas others are the response to today's world and its current affairs - politics, history, sexuality and art. A particular attention is dedicated to woman‘s figure. The woman is usually represented as sexualized, full of liveliness, but at the same time gross or vulgar. Figurative representations – with no excessive regard for anatomy – and the equally naive and simplified depictions of nature.

V. Marcinkevicius chooses the privilege of an artist to ask the viewer uncomfortable questions about the history of nation, state and individual, the price of political, economic and personal victories and losses. He invites the viewer to interpret the paintings using their own experience and point of view.
