Eigirdas Scinskas, 1974 / lives and creates in Vilnius, Lithuania
My inspiration has come about from a need to find a new form of expression, an original language with paint. I'm extremely physical with the work, each painting has layer upon layer of marks, painted out colour and re-worked imagery. The works are all created out of a need and desire to see work that personally satisfies me as a painter.
Contemporary art and abstract painting – it’s individuality, which is not affected by environmental disturbances. I paint what I feel, what inspire me as an artist – this can be desert, full of movement city, the colors of recently visited cities, taste, – all real emotions. I was strongly impressed by the fact that in the studio only am I, prepared handmade canvas and colors. Pure creativity, flight and feeling of present. Often I start to paint only having an idea, visual color of experiences and do not know what the painting will look like at the end. Color is an essential element of the painting, but the basic idea is the to convey emotional impact. I often ask myself whether this is art? But in modern society become difficult to answer what’s what, and even more – what is art, where in one unit often mixed chaos and harmony.
You might have seen my abstract paintings at the following exhibitions.
