Kestutis Jauniskis was born in 1961 in Vilnius, the capital of the Republic of Lithuania. Graduating from Vilnius school of Fine Arts in 1985, Jauniskis became interested in the concept of scale, abstraction and abstract painting. The fragments of his native old town were deeply embedded in his memory and so began to profoundly inspire his work. Mixing both abstracted elements with those from his imagination he hopes to create a sense of optimism and light which is fundamental to all his work. Exhibiting across Lithuania and Finland his work is held in numerous private collections.
