My name is Piotras Kostinas, and I am an Ukrainian painter, who has been living in Lithuania for over 30 years, with my beloved wife from St. Petersburg. I was born and raised in Ukraine and always felt that thrill of painting, so it was not hard to choose my career path. Before starting to study with professional teachers, I began learning to paint by myself, as my father always supported me. I find inspiration from books and the works of older masters. Currently, I have a studio at the popular neighborhood Uzupis. My paintings are characterized by transparency at the shadows and relief painting in the light.
