Martinas Andrius currently lives in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts a Boston suburb. He has been painting New England coastal landscapes for the past 4 years, typically working with oil on canvas and linen, full time. You can find him spending the warmer days of the year on the corner of Newbury and Dartmouth Street, painting, displaying, promoting, and selling his art. Martinas is being trained by his father Mindaugas Andrius who is also a landscape painter. The main body of work is inspired from locations on the North Shore and Cape Cod near Newburyport, Plum Island, Salisbury, Crane Beach, Sandwich, Barnstable, Orleans, Truro, and Proviencetown.
These paintings are born of an emotional connection to the medium and the desire to understand the subconscious activity behind creating art. Art represents a feeling, mood, expression, a scene of reality in color. The landscapes are fantasies of an existing location and a mood that represents a place of meditation, and a scene of isolation from the surrounding environment.
