…there was a time I found it beautiful to watch the paint running, and I still do,

there was a time I found it beautiful to watch the sun rising, and I still do;

there was a time I found it beautiful to wait for the darkness coming, and I still do;

there was a time I found it beautiful to listen to how everything falls silent, and I still do…

Kęstutis Lupeikis, from „ANGIS“ catalogue, 2010

Art critic on…

Kęstutis Lupeikis joined the artist group Angis at the time of Rimvydas Jankauskas-Kampas’ death, so his debut was sort of unremarked. Later yet the artist much strengthened the more reasoned part of the group’s artists . He disequilibrated the group’s forces. His conceptualism and minimalism, his artistic attitude, hallucinogenic, though not detached from reality, opposed against romantic Angis’ artists, preventing them from dreams about themselves. The maturity of artistic development, this was his contribution.

 Jonas Gasiūnas, from „ANGIS“ catalogue, 2001
