Vincas Kisarauskas (1934-1988) today is considered to be the most advanced Lithuanian artist of the Soviet era, a representative of the radical (post)modernism, an extremely talented creator, who inspired his colleagues not only from his generation with bold experiments. The artist's work is extremely rich and varied. Kisarauskas tried almost all types of art and often combined them in one work, created paintings, graphics, assemblages, collages, scenic sketches, worked as a film artist, photographed, as well as wrote art criticism texts and researched book signs. He even built imaginary walls of the paintings only so that he can demolish them, and in creating them he disregarded the norms and boundaries. The legacy of Kisarauskas' work forces us to rethink the relationship between art and reality, traditions and novelty, aesthetics and politics, the Soviet era and the present. Leaning figures, especially abundant in the artist’s late works, continue to look at us, reminding us of the past and warning of tomorrow.
