Linas Kaziulionis has successfully defended his painting diploma at Vilnius Art Academy, 2018 granted professional artist status provided by Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania. He has been active in the art world for more than ten years, participates in interdisciplinary and painting projects and is currently studying for a master's degree in painting at the Vilnius Academy of Arts.
The artistic experience of L. Kaziulionis can be divided into two parts: one – muralistic art, which made the artist known even outside the country, and secondly – classical painting, which is interesting for its depth, conceptual and freshness. L. Kaziulionis’ large-scale muralistic works have become the landscapes of the city or certain subcultures inviting to dialogue with the artists and history of the past. This is a favorite theme by Linas Kaziulionis, which is escalated in more than one of his works – well-known works of classical art are interwoven with the images and details of the modern world, questioning their influence and place in the life of modern man. The use of different authors, characters, installation of works using the latest technologies becomes a leitmotif of L. Kaziulionis work, enticing even a young audience who is not interested in art. Meanwhile, classical oil painting is very intimate, small-format, contemplative.
