The Abundance of Associations and Narrative of Creations in Artist’s Rimvydas Mulevičius Pictures

Rimvydas Mulevičius is known as a long time professor of the Vilnius Art Academy and the Kaunas Faculty Drawing Studio, He is a stained-glass artist, skilful drawer, and a participant of many watercolour and graphics exhibitions in Lithuania and abroad. The plastic expression which unfolds in the artists’ paintings should probably be referred to as realistic, although his drawings undoubtedly gain an associative, surrealistic nature as well because of a particular interpretation of chosen themes, plots and characters. Some of the themes (Christianity, architecture) in R. Mulevičius creations are more traditional and classic, therefore, their representation is quite casual. Meanwhile, other plots (autoportrait, fragments of human anatomy) reflect the artist’s specific appreciation of the world and the dominating surrealistic principle of visualisation, which accounts for the paintings’ originality and suggestibility. Therefore this article will be dedicated to a thorough analysis of R. Mulevičius creations: the display of artists’ metaphorical, associative outlook, thematic spectrum of production. It will also highlight the plastic tools of expression and the specifics of artistic representation.
