Vaclovas Vekerotas is a Lithuanian artist. He studied and worked in Klaipėda, a port city, where seeing ships and boats was part of his everyday life. In 1973, he graduated from Vilnius Art Institute. Every fall he goes to the sea for plein air painting. Boats continue to play an important role in his art, just as they did in his youth in Klaipėda. Vaclovas Vekerotas “People live their lives like ships: they sail and meet. If a painting is created without feeling or passion, it will be nothing but a painted board.”
