Virginijus Viningas (born in 1960 in Pasvalys). Painter, pedagogue. Mostly creates in the fields of painting, stained glass, assemblage. Studied painting in Vilnius Academy of Arts. Member of the Lithuanian Artists’ Association. Since 1988 has been participating in exhibitions in Lithuania, Sweden in international plein airs in Germany, Denmark, Finland, etc. His easily recognizable and uniquely style of painting is called by art critics “a conglomerate of brushstrokes, touches and drips“, where the combination of two or three colours is quite enough to enliven the characters, to make them speak. The best-known cycles of his works are dedicated to dance, sports and music, convincingly capturing a movement and ecstatic flight. Lives and works in Klaipėda.
