RIMVYDAS PUPELIS (MUTA)

Born in 1965, Obeliai, Lithuania.

2006 Graduated from Šiauliai University of Art and Technology in Lithuania.

Rimvydas Pupelis painter, scenographer, author of original artistic projects is a well-known artist not only in Lithuania but also abroad. Against the background of Lithuanian art, Rimvydas’ works have a very recognizable manner of painting – brightness, playfulness, anticipation of emotions and enrichment of colors.
R. Pupelis basically became a cubist manner. The roots of the artist’s work are linked to the founder of the Cubist movement Pablo Picasso (1881 – 1973). Bean creates figurative compositions in which people are analyzed, broken down and reassembled in an abstract form, the artist depicts the subject from many points. This method, according to the artist, makes it possible to convey the diversity and complexity of human relationships and differences in personalities. Meanwhile, colors are bright, contrasting, and expressive, representing the amplitude of personal emotions. Using the manner of Cubism, the artist talks about people and their relationships, full of irony, humor and absurd situations. He seeks to portray the immediate environment in a grotesque way and with a bit of eroticism.
Rimvydas Pupelis has been a member of the Lithuanian Artists ‘Union since 2019, a member of the French Artists’ House since 2019, and has been granted the status of an artist in 2015.
In 2017 R. Pupelis was awarded the title of Honorary Citizen of the City of Obeliai, the 2008 International Theater Day nomination “The Most Bright Scenography of the Season” and many other honorable nominations
