Artist Creates Beautiful Ships He Sees In His Dreams

Modestas Malinauskas is a Lithuania-based, former fireman who now works as an artist. He loves to create oil paintings of fantasy ships which are born in his dreams.

“Those paintings are born in my fantasies and dreams,” the artist shared. “Every single one has a story of its own. I always know the story, but sometimes it is not so easy to tell it in words. The easiest way for me to express it – is to paint it. My inspiration comes from traveling and different experiences in my life. What I see and what I feel stays with me and I express it with oil on canvases.”

According to the artist, he uses artists knife and layering techniques in his work, so it takes some time for a painting to be born.
