The Fantasy Art of Modestas Malinauskas

Lithuanian artist Modestas Malinauskas paints lush, multi-layered oil paintings. Many of them depict fantasy landscapes and fabulous boats and airships, the kind that could inspire dozens of stories. Take a look at a selection of Malinauskas' paintings from the Paveikslai Internet Art Gallery.

Malinauskas’ representative, Marius Virbickas, tells us:

The main difficulty in the technique is that it is both expressive and also detailed. So Modestas takes a lot of time first making some expressive layer, and after painting tiny details. Also, there are many layers on the painting - he uses a little paint to create those blends and the feeling of space and "glory" and greatness of the things depicted.

Malinauskas never repeats his paintings -each is one-of-a-kind, and each takes several weeks to create. Modestas Malinauskas lives in Kaunas, Lithhuania, with his wife, renowned doll artist Lina Drižiūte and their three children.

Here’s a look at the artist at work.
