The breathtaking cityscapes of Marijus Jusionis are inspired by the secrets and stories hidden amongst the visible trappings of urban life. He bright and impactful paintings tell these stories and express the changing moods and passing moments of life. He believes that urban spaces and city architecture offer some of the best representations of human natural creativity and are an honest reflection of social customs, culture and lifestyle. The material he draws on is extensive and allows him to examine these themes from many different angles which he finds challenging and ultimately rewarding.
Marijus bases his creations on both the seen and the unseen. He builds cities in his own imagination though always with reference to a particular location in terms of architecture and sometimes even specific landmarks. Although he often travels in search of inspiration, he always paints back in his studio in Hertfordshire. Many of his works are drawn from his experiences of London, in particular the Southbank, the City and Hampstead Heath.
Marijus was born in Lithuania in 1966. His grandmother was a doctor and an art collector and her house was full of paintings. As a child he studied them in detail and they provided the earliest stages of his evolution as an artist. After graduating in Technical Design from Kaunas University in Lithuania he moved to London in the mid-nineties and studied art at Kingsway College London and the Hampstead School of Art.
In his early days, Marijus worked mainly with pencil and charcoal but then moved on to oils and acrylics. He describes his painting style now as spontaneous, unpredictable and inventive. Having prepared the work, he observes it critically and often makes dramatic changes to reach the final effect he is seeking. He wants each piece to be an accurate communication of his emotions saying: “When I feel good in a particular environment I want to reflect it in my paintings.”
Marijus had his first solo exhibition in London at Lauderdale House in Highgate. Since then his work has been exhibited all over London and is held in several private collections.
“My paintings are suggestions rather than realities, open to interpretation. I want to show things the way a camera cannot. Imperfection counts.”
About The Artist
Born in 1969, Madeleine Floyd studied Fine Art and Illustration at Camberwell College of Art, and has achieved great success in both fields. Madeleine Floyd works from her studio in London and is fast becoming one of Britain’s best-loved artists.
Madeleine Floyd’s creative talent is one of remarkable depth and variety. Madeleine Floyd paints, she draws, she writes and she illustrates. This versatility allows Madeleine Floyd to produce hugely successful exhibitions, and write and illustrate her own books including the recent classic ‘Birdsong’, published by Anova Books. Her illustrations are informed by a strong draughtsmanship that captures the essence and emotion of the subjects she chooses, combining a timeless sensitivity with a gentle humour. With only a dip pen and a pot of ink she is able to capture the essence of a subject with the most minimal and elegant use of line. Her work is both accessible and sophisticated, immediate and engaging.
This collection of prints celebrates one of Madeleine’s great passions – British birds; their songs, characters and diversity.
“I have always loved birds. There is a humble fidelity in their presence that consoles. Their ability to find something to sing about reminds me that our existence, whether happy, flat or turbulent, is nothing short of miraculous.”
“Why do birds sing? I would love to know for sure? In fact I lie: I’m delighted that we don’t know for sure and I hope we never become so informed as to fully understand that mystery. I like to think birds sing for the same reason that they fly, quite simply because they can. I hope we can take inspiration from their simplicity, and as humans do what we can with what we have, and if we feel moved to warble along in life, all the better.”
