„The only way to say what abstract is, is to say what it is not.“
Benita Malciute is a contemporary painter from Lithuania. With a background in interior design studies and graphic design, she has developed a unique approach to structures and composition. However, her true passion lies in expressing her emotions and offering an original perspective on the environment. Benita finds inspiration in the people around her, dreams, movies, and nature. Her interest in psychology and self-analysis is reflected in her artworks, which explore a range of emotions such as fear, depression, anxiety, confidence, and inner peace. The artist does not limit herself to portraying beauty solely in positive emotions.
Instead, she uses painting as a safe space to express her sensitive, introverted, and lyrical personality. Benita describes the energy she perceives in each subject, emphasizing abstract shapes and lines. Her art is characterized by purposeful brushwork and a color palette dominated by rich earth tones, applied in thick layers. The dominant feature of her work is the interplay of soft light and overlapping planes, where objects and figures emerge from a dreamlike atmosphere of harmonious color. Bold patterns and vivid lines convey deep emotion and meaning. Benita’s artwork can be found in private collections in Lithuania, the United States, Germany, and Denmark.
