Linas Kaziulionis has successfully defended his painting diploma at Vilnius Art Academy, 2018 granted professional artist status provided by Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania. Linas is currently studying for a master’s degree in painting.
He has been active in the art world for more than seven years, participates in interdisciplinary and painting projects, and at the beginning of the year he founded the public creative studio K ART 7 in the Old Town of Vilnius, where artistic presentations are gaining momentum.
The artistic experience of L. Kaziulionis can be divided into two parts: one – muralistic art, which made the artist known even outside the country, and secondly – classical painting, which is interesting for its depth, conceptual and freshness. L. Kaziulionis’ large-scale muralistic works have become the landscapes of the city or certain subcultures inviting to dialogue with the artists and history of the past. This is a favorite theme by Linas Kaziulionis, which is escalated in more than one of his works – well-known works of classical art are interwoven with the images and details of the modern world, questioning their influence and place in the life of modern man. The use of different authors, characters, installation of works using the latest technologies becomes a leitmotif of L. Kaziulionis work, enticing even a young audience who is not interested in art. Meanwhile, classical oil painting is very intimate, small-format, contemplative.

Artwork presentation

1. The work of art “Dadaist Mona Lisa in the 21st Century” is a combination of the fragments of “Mona Lisa” and math problems. Technological solutions are added to the painting. This work is painted with 3D effect; Mona Lisa is wearing special glasses made of light tubes. Objective of this project – exhibition of visual art in new and interactive manner, using innovation and technologies, and expanding the limits of the understanding of traditional art.
2. “Lady with an Ermine” and “La Belle Ferronniere” transformed into modern ladies, who play chess with their headphones on. According to the author of this idea, this game, as a symbol of wisdom, courage, insight and diligence, is a particularly suitable detail for the University’s exterior.
3. In today’s world, we face a huge flow of information, which makes it extremely difficult for everyone to deal with it. We can say that information is a very good and useful thing, but from another angle, a person seems to “close” his information bubble and can no longer process it correctly or find reliable information, which has recently become a very big problem in today’s digital in the world.

Deeply influenced by contemporary culture and society’s everyday observation, his work deals with transformation and experimentation and has diverse applications. Daily life impacts on his creativity and emotions define everything he does.
Artwork presentation
My greatest influence is the daily routine of our time. The stimuli can now be infinite enough if only you train your operating system in such a way of thinking.  Architecture, urban scenery are some thing i really observe. I would describe my job as an emotional escape or otherwise as a spiritual revelation. It’s obvious that it’s geometric, sometimes more rigid in terms of structure and forms and sometimes more free. Abstract compositions with handwriting scriptures, motifs, and stylized forms are some of the elements I have been studying and working on lately. The spontaneity and the element of improvisation play a decisive role in the creative process and it’s an internal necessity that guides me through the appropriate combination of color-form-object.

Dimensions are variable, according to the project.
Materials: Acrylics, Spraypaint, Tapes,Rulers.
