BIOGRAPHY 

 

Danguole Serstinskaja is a world's leading drybrush painting Master from Lithuania who focuses on hyper realistic style. Danguole has lifelong experience as an artist, with skill ranging from academic art to impressionistic oil painting, and after producing hundreds of drawings and paintings of landscapes, animals and humans, she eventually found and developed a rare technique which perfectly aligns with her artistic desire to portray animals and people deeply, accurately and efficiently. The said technique is applying oil on paper using a dry paint brush. Having mastered this technique Danguole has gained a liberating amount of control over the intensity of shading and ability to add as much detail as she desires. She works layer after layer, until her artistic vision is fulfilled, and the result is art with distinct tonal gradation, hyper realistic detail and contrast that makes the painting hard to distinguish from a photograph, enthralling many artists and collectors from various and even opposing backgrounds.

ARTIST STATEMENT 

 

I am a Lithuanian artist focusing on hyperrealistic animal paintings using an oil on paper technique. I grew up in lush and untouched Lithuanian nature which developed a deep emotional connection with it.

 

My decades of experience bringing up various animals inspired me to create art that focuses on them, expressing their characters, souls, poses and all the details.

After years of academic drawing I found and developed a rare drybrush technique which perfectly aligned with this artistic vision.

 

I paint by applying oil on paper with a dry paint brush, working layer by layer, shading and detailing until my vision is fulfilled. The result is art with smooth and distinct tonal gradation and hyperrealistic detail.

 

I hope my art helps people form a deeper connection with animals and contribute to the welfare of the animal world.
