Algis Beržiūnas is a multi-disciplinary Lithuanian artist whose works have featured in publications, collections and exhibitions throughout the country. Always fighting for a balance between concept and aesthetics, he takes an experimentative technical approach that results in works full of interesting shapes and symbolism. For Beržiūnas, the medium of paint is a tool for deconstructing reality.
What was your first experience with/discovery of art? What made you want to become an artist?
Ass I remember my self since deep chilhood I was allways atracted and hungry for aestetical satisfaction for constructing by my self, or gazing all what is irational in the world around. Background of 7 years in classic violin muzic school and 4 years of architectural design studies baccalaureate in Vilnius academy of arts, made me hungry for more, so I have decided to take it all:)
Are there any key themes, messages or theories behind your work?
In general it is like a game like "playart" for me. One day I will stay in one, or two, but today Im "enjoyng" of my experiments. Divergent thinking as a link between creativity and mental disorder gives me subjective opportunities for self expression, but allso takes down connection with objective reality. The "ballance" in concept and aestetics is what I am allways fighting for. So there is allways takes and mistakes together.
Could you tell us a bit about your artistic approach? (Style, medium and specific techniques.)
Paint as medium itself for me is a tool for deconstructing reality in level of sound taste and smell or out of concios concepts. Symbolism goes abstract and returns back in self made shapes like watter and ice.
