Mindaugas Lukošaitis graduated from the Sculpture Department at the Vilnius Academy of Arts. The artist regularly takes part in international group shows and holds solo exhibitions in Lithuania and abroad. He represented Lithuania at the 26th São Paulo Biennial and participated in the Populism exhibition curated by Nicolaus Schafhausen at the Frankfurter Kustverein. Lukošaitis’ works have been exhibited at institutions like VOLTA NY in New York, the Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius, and Galerie Fons Walters in Amsterdam. They have also been included in Phaidon’s encyclopedia “Vitamin D: New Perspectives in Drawing”. Works by Lukošaitis are featured in the collections of the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art (Denmark), Lewben Art Foundation (Lithuania), MO Museum (Lithuania), as well as private collectors in Lithuania and abroad.
Lukošaitis uses a sketch-like manner in his drawings: the strokes are free and swift, yet acutely precise. He tends to rely on the classical, academic drawing technique, where a pencil is used for shading and outlining. The academic approach here is relative, because he draw “his own realism” without using models or pictures. One of the most significant aspects of his works is certain aspects of imagery, tendencies of human imagination, and strives to promote a responsible outlook on history.
