About Jonas Kunickas

 
 
  • Biography

    The main inspiration for my work is a human body – I believe the most perfect peace of art God has ever created. I have tried and independently studied many different painting techniques finding out my own style and a way of doing it. I have settled down on oil paint and pallet knife – I don‘t use brushes for my oil paintings any longer. Life is colourful so are my paintings. There are no good or bad colours, there is only a right or wrong place to use it - it applies not only for a painting, but for all kind of design and art media. In a process of creating a new art-piece a big part of the final result depends on a person posing for it. I am very thankful to the models for helping me to achieve my goals. It is vital for an artist working on a figurative painting to find a suitable model to work together as a team.

Biography

The main inspiration for my work is a human body – I believe the most perfect peace of art God has ever created.

I have settled down on oil paint and pallet knife – I don‘t use brushes for my oil paintings any longer. Life is colourful so are my paintings. There are no good or bad colours, there is only a right or wrong place to use it - it applies not only for a painting, but for all kind of design and art media. In a process of creating a new art-piece a big part of the final result depends on a person posing for it. I am very thankful to the models for helping me to achieve my goals.
