Julija Tumelyte is a highly successful Lithuanian artist. In 2011 she graduated from Vilnius Art Academy Fine Art Master studies, and started to develop an original painting style. Her paintings are recognisable from vivid colours, expressive artistic manner, sharp line & colour contrast. African people portraits, nature & urban landscapes, exotic animals, plants & abstractions dominate in creative themes.

Artist residence and travels in France, Italy, Monaco, international studies in Denmark & England and other travel experiences - allowed her to mix different cultural backgrounds with COLOUR and to search for a NEW contemporary painting language.
