So, we have for you the right place to visit: the ‘Pilies Galerija’, a little unnoticed spot situated in one of the main streets of Senamiestis (the Old Town), in a typical old brick red wall house. When you enter the door you are immediately overcomed by a welcoming and hypnotic fragrance flowing in the air, and then you are ready to steep yourself in this tiny surrealistic sea! The gallery exhibits the work of Lithuanian visionary painters, currently you can find (and buy) here some paintings by Daiva Staškevičienė, Giedra Purlytė-Mažrimienė, Arunas Zilys and Marius Liugaila. What do they have in common? Visions, dreams, colours, oneiric and poised characters. Because Vilnius is an odd mix of fairy tales and De Chirico’s pictures.
