Artist Vilius Ksaveras Slavinskas started to create when he already had quite big experience. When he was a final year student at Kaunas, Polytechnic Institute he started to study Kaunas Evening Art School, where A. Lukstas, M. Mildazyte-Kulikauskaite, C. Kontrimas, A. Martinaitis were all his teachers. Maybe, this moment was fateful for his the further artist life. In 1970, V. K. Slavinskas started to study at State Art Institute of Lithuania (now Vilnius Art Academy). When he finished it, since 1978, V. K. Slavinskas was an active artist and he is active up to date.
At first, V. K Slavinskas favorite genres were landscapes and still-lifes which he executed in watercolour technique. Afterwards, he included acrylic and mixed media techniques. Objects of paintings were getting various sided and cloe to an abstraction. In the paintings personages are depicted in a manner of surrealism, where the real features of them are lost and only outlines and capacities becomes the hints while trying to name the particular object.
Colours are playing a very important role in V. K. Slavinskas paintings; from cold tones to dramatic ones and also grey earth colours, which are usually framed by clear outline. Every colour spot beats its peculiar rhythm and so created various moods in a composition. Because of colours his artworks become similar to a manner of expressionists' paintings. Every element of painting is charged by a meaning; sometimes it is philosophical thoughts of author, sometimes the movtives comes from nature, fauna, marine life. While trying to sort out the coded ieas of the paintings from decorative colourful plate to deeper meanings every observer-subject continue the proess of creation independently from the author.
