Jonas Kunickas was born in 1978 in Lithuania. He studied architecture and received his Master’s degree in Architecture in 2002. Jonas Kunickas worked as an architect and interior designer in Lithuania and the UK for ten years. However, his greatest passion has always been painting.
“ 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 ” . – Jonas Kunickas.
