ERNEST ZACHAREVIC (LT)
Classically trained as a painter and with a degree in fine art, Lithuanian-born artist Ernest Zacharevic has built himself a reputation in street and fine-art circles with the emotional impact and interdisciplinary nature of his work. Now based in Penang, Malaysia, he describes himself as “a fine artist who prefers to work on the street.”
Moving freely between oil painting, installation, sculpture, illustration and stencils, Zacharevic regularly combines real objects and painted figures to produce interesting and exciting compositions. Focusing mostly on portraits and inspired by the ambience and environment around the site he paints, he takes a particularly humorous approach to painting, especially when it comes to incorporating holes, pipes, and other insignificant features that are commonly found in streets, into his artworks. Even more so, at the heart of his work lies the joy and frivolity of children, whom Zacharevic portrays in playful scenes that border on the nostalgic.
