Justin Krasuckas is youngest generation Northern Europe (Lithuanian) artist working in portraiture, figurative and landscape genres. His main inspiration to art comes from wild, mysterious, melancholic nature same with people, cinema and music.

Plein air painting with my students.

Krasuckas is using realistic approach learned from old masters when he studied in Florence Academy of Art in Italy. He uses this technique to create interesting narrative stories. Mostly his art are based in two mediums – oil painting and etching.
Now almost decade he is painting portrait commissions for private clients, also participating in local and international exhibitions, competitions and going to annual pleinairs.

In recent time Krasuckas is teaching classical portrait drawing and painting course in his co-founded “Classical Realist Atelier” art school in Lithuania. Also, lecturing in Vilnius Art Academy as drawing and painting teacher.
