Gediminas Pranckevičius is a Lithuanian illustrator based in Vilnius, the capital of the country. His works enchant us by the richness in the detailed and eye-catching finishes. Mainly his illustrations of dreamlike landscapes that ignore the laws of gravity and our intuitive logic. True dream worlds.
I started to draw when I was a child and later I studied at Vilnius Academy of Arts with a specialization in fresco painting. I grew up having several family members working in creative fields. My grandmother used to work at the drama theater and my mother at a mask theater for children and an orchestra, and my uncle is a painter. No doubt this environment had a great impact on me. (…) We can find a lot of inspiration on Internet, but what we find there is not original anymore, used too many times. It would be smarter to search for inspiration in the nature, in our lives. The forest, the beaver sitting behind the stump, the mole digging its sweet home… are an endless source of inspiration. Vilnius old town is also a wonderful place to create wonderful fantasies.Gediminas Pranckevicius
