Arunas Vilkevicius is infinitely gifted

Scarce are the people who can make what they imagine with their eyes and hands. Even scarcer are the people who can elevate masterly craft to enlightening art. Arunas Vilkevicius from Lithuania is such a person who is infinitely gifted.

Without any specific artistic training, he has become proficient in designing and making furniture over the past decades. Mastering all styles, his preference goes out to Art Nouveau in which the connection with nature plays an all-important role. What do you have to say about mastery when you see the object below? Every splinter of wood has been hand felt by Arunas. We are speechless!

 

 

Around 2016 Arunas picked up the watercolor brush; a new outlet for his creative mind. Fascinated by the degree of difficulty, the capriciousness of the medium, as if wood were difficult to work with, watercolor painting became a positively charged obsession. And whoever examines his oeuvre discovers the connection with nature and Art Nouveau again plays a significant role.

 

Arunas, who doesn't know him in 2121?

Already painting as an accomplished 'master', he is greedy in the choice of subjects. He does not commit himself to a single theme. Like a child at the entrance to the playground, he chooses his subject seemingly at random. He often bites into it for months. And to such an extent that his production is limited if we make a comparison with the traditional watercolorist who comes up with a watercolor a day with graceful brushstrokes. Not Arunas!

 

 

The execution always borders on perfection…no…is perfect. The mastery of the watercolor technique is superior, the fabric expression is astonishing, choice of color and application borders on photographic reproduction. The individual works are not without expressiveness, the message is, however, withheld, not 'in your face'. Each and every one of Aruna's works are artistic masterpieces of craftsmanship and a great asset to any owner.

And…the number of owners of artworks by Arunas Vilkevicius is steadily growing. Works find their way to all continents, which emphasizes that the appreciation for his art is universal. We are very proud to be able to present Arunas at Aquarel Art in 2021, in the knowledge that our choice will still be solid in 2121.
