26 years ago Lithuania regained freedom after 50 years of occupation by the Soviet Union. That's when I saw and tasted bananas for the first time. It was new, delicious, and tasted like freedom. This painting is exactly about that - Freedom banana.
It's framed and ready to hang. Will ship carefully packed in the box with certificate of authencity included. Measurements are with frame (22.2" X 26.3"), only painting - 14" X 18".

I was born on December 15th, 1976 in Kaunas, Lithuania. After one year we’ve moved to capital city of Lithuania – Vilnius. Here I started my school, where was I was attending progressive art classes. From the early days I was involved in the art world - my father is a photographer and mother was an architect. Our house was always full of people from the art world. I got to know them personally and grew up surrounded by them. In highschool I was attending music school, where I played the cello. This is still a frequent image in my paintings. I love the cello. I’ve started to paint in 1990, but it was just the silence before the storm before the storm. My personal awakening occurred in February of 2003 in NYC, and I called that POFICK. Finally my art was given form and meaning. I imagined that if Fluxus exists, Pofick could exist as well, and not only in paintings, but in other forms of art and as a unique view of the world and a type of lifestyle.
