About Augustas Lopas

I studied painting at Vilnius Academy of Arts in Lithuania. Since 2016 member of Lithuanian Artists Union. Since 2000 I organized 15 solo exhibitions and participated in 18 group exhibitions.In my earlier paintings I analyzed the human character, figurative was dominated. Paintings reflected neo-expressionism and surrealism. 2013 I began a new stage and step into the world of abstract spaces. I'm interested in searching and experimenting, so it all reflecting in technical decisions. I have rich experience in wall decoration, frescoes, so I am interested in a variety of new technologies, that’s why I apply them in my painting. In my works, there is a lot of musicality and light - components that create an additional effect on the viewer. The works are enriched with interesting textures, unexpected color solutions. The luminous fluxes at work give an optimistic and peaceful tone. I create paintings not according to a predetermined scenario, but impulsively in the process of work, allowing the appearances to be appropriately integrated into my painting structures. I experimenting with pigments and colors, with new materials, acrylic structures, silicon and other combinations. The paints and touch technology. In the case of touch, we should talk about the psychological, not the technical, because the ultimate goal is dedicated to this. All of that multilayered, or vice versa, transparency (usually the two principles interact in one thing) shows that all senses in our lives are like touches.
