Painter Nina Ždanovič


“Look away” Japanese mineral pigments on Japanese paper 25x20 cm, 2019  The painting features two people caught in an urban setting. The city behind the two seems as if it’s floating, pulsating. It reminds of a dream, or a distant memory: some parts aren’t as sharp as the others, and the atmosphere is filled simultaneously with a sense of uncertainty, and a warm reassuring light of a setting sun.

I was born and raised in Vilnius, Lithuania. I was always an artsy kid, doing painting, theatre, dance, writing: any form of self-expression I felt was right. The one that stuck with me was drawing and painting.

The illustration features two young women in the beginning of their relationship. They both are wearing traditional Japanese male clothing. There is a sense of festivity and excitement associated with falling in love and pride of being who you are.
