Lithuanian artist Gediminas Pranckevičius was born in the small town of Panevezys. Coming from artistic roots — his godfather was an artist and his mother and grandmother worked for theaters — it was no surprise that he entered a creative field himself.
"I wasn't a very good pupil at school, but I really loved to draw," Pranckevičius told A+ in an email. "Consequently I joined art school later and enrolled into an art academy, which helped me choose fresco [as a] specialty."
Today, Pranckevičius works as a freelance illustrator, concept artist, employing programs like Adobe Photoshop, 3D software and Corel Painter to achieve the dreamlike effects that give his creations an otherworldly and magical feel.
Slice of life
"When I work, I try to live with the idea, not hurry, listening to some particular music to get into that mood. I’m very satisfied if viewers feel the same emotions looking at the work."
"I get inspiration from old master paintings, digital art, life, music, silence."
