EXHIBITION HISTORY:

Solo show Turbulence, Vilnius, Lithuania, 2019
Vilnius Art Fair 2020

1956 Rokiškis, Lithuania

Raimondas Gailiūnas is one of the most mysterious contemporary Lithuanian artists. The painter resides and exhibits away from the centres of art, therefore his work had not been noticed by art critics and wider audience for a long time. Born in small village Pandėlys, Lithuania, in 1956. Lives and paints in Rokiškis, LT.  
While working as a professional metalworker in Rokiškis, Raimondas Gailiūnas began to paint. Since 1979, he has held exhibitions in Rokiškis Regional Museum as well as Biržai, Zarasai, and Panevėžys galleries. 
In 1980, he enrolled in the Vilnius Institute of Art (now the Vilnius Academy of Arts), but dropped out, only finishing his degree there in 1996. 
Painter made his first appearance in the Lithuanian painting scene in the 1990s with the Artist Group ‘Angis’, as a member of the group, participating in its exhibitions. 
Almost three decades of persistent work brought wider recognition, after a whole series of Gailiūnas paintings was purchased by the Modern Art Centre (for Mo Museum collection), Vilnius, Lithuania.
In 2013, he was selected as the best artist at the Art Vilnius’13 art fair.
 „He paints spontaneously, with expressive, thick, and heavy dabs of paint. In such way of painting, even the traditional motives become intense.” Dr. Prof. Raminta Jurėnaitė, Art critic.
