STAS was born in Vilnius (Lithuania) in 1960. At a young age the promise he showed as an artist lead to his admission at the Art School for gifted children. After spending four years at the Vilnius Middle Art School, he entered the Minsk Academy of Art where he graduated in 1993.
STAS combines his artistic training with vivid imagination in strikingly realistic portrayals of ancient myth, the human figure, and sensuality in the metamorphosis of man and machine. His ability to bring past mythology to life in a style that combines past and present elevates his work above all others in his field. STAS presents an unrivaled mastery in bringing life to mind-blowing realities with powerful emotion. The intrigue in his portraits of women lies not only in technique but the way they reveal as much as is left to the imagination.
