Comment
アクアチントを主にした凹版の作品が多い。バルトに伝わる民話等をテーマにした民族的な作風が特徴である。 現在、リトアニア美術家連盟の代表者をつとめる。数年前、国際版画交流協会の招きで来日し、日本各地で個展を行い高い評価を得ている。

Nijole Saltenyte uses Baltic folktale themes in her works, mostly in the medium of aquatinted intaglio prints. Since the International Print Exchange Association’s invitation to Japan she has held exhibitions in various places throughout Japan that has increased her reputation. She is currently representative of the Artists’ Association of Lithuania.
