Kęstutis Vasiliūnasさんは、国際的なフィールドでたいへん精力的に活動している作家です。キャンヴァスに刷る作品以外にも、版画を手段として、Artist’s Bookなど様々な形態の美術表現に取り組んでいる彼の仕事は、「版画」が本来持ち合わせている豊かな可能性を再認識することができて、とても魅力的です。

One of the most inspirational things about Vasiliūnas is his exploration of artistic expressions through the medium of prints; his works and various activities in the international scene as well as making prints on canvas make us recognize the rich potential of printmaking.
