Five portraits represent five personalities. Their life stories, (sometimes) tragic life events, devotion to creativity and people inspire and encourage me not to be a part of this society that only floats downstream. I begin to acknowledge the fear of being “consumed”, of becoming yet another dull particle of the society. Five personalities portrayed in the collection are: Justinas Mikutis Justinas (1922 – 1988); Artūras Barysas-Baras Artūras (1954 – 2005); Jurgis Mačiūnas Jurgis (1931 – 1978); Charles Bukowski Bukas (1920 – 1994); Vilius Orvidas Vilius (1952 – 1992). All of them were perceived as eccentrics by the society. However, they were all unique, their simplicity was intact, and they were all human, self-contained or open to everyone. All of them fought the consumer society, its coldness, cruelty, stupidity and lack of tolerance.
