Andrius Kovelinas has been living in Ireland for almost 5 years now. His extraordinary style and imagination has been on show at The Green Gallery shortly after he set foot on these shores. For many years Andrius had travelled throughout Europe producing his masterly works everywhere he went “I travelled a lot in Europe through Countries such as Sweden, France, Hungary, Lithuania, Spain.
In summer time every years, traditionally, he participates in the international Art Camp in France. 2007 year was excellent for Andrius. After two weeks 5 days travelling thru the French Normandy where he was inspired with new ideas for his pictures. The final exhibition was in Sorbay .
Generally, Andrius’s themes are women. When it comes to painting women he takes great joy from this subject and will continue to pursue painting extraordinary works of beautiful women as long as he will be able to paint. “Women are designed amazingly by our Creator.
All works are oil on canvas, but style and technique are not so important. So the tools are classic As usual small brushes. First – the idea is sketched on paper, then the real painting is produced.
The only problem is time. I cannot create fast. Each work required preparation (the idea) and then realisation. I never paint directly on canvas without sketches. It can take between 2 days to 3month. As a result a beautiful picture is produced”. It is good to know that there are people out there who love Andrius work.
“The important thing is that the people love the art, when a person buys my work and hangs it up on their wall, with positive energy and love. They not only have a beautiful picture, but a good mood and a small part of me, the artist”.
