Juozas is one of the most hardworking and productive painters, who can sense the painterly whole in a special way. His paintings are full of expression, colour, light and factures. The painter knows well how to capture the essence of the visual world, transform it to a unique artistic form and create his "own" painting by ingenuity and persuasiveness that leave no one untouched. Painter Svajunas Armonas
There are nothing artificial or unreal in Juozas Pranckevičius' works. The colouring in his paintings is usually realistic, which essentially is a reflection of his world view. He does not use big colour deformations when painting nature of both Lithuania and other countries. All of his plentiful works are an artistic expression of his inner experiences. Painter Antanas Beinaravicius
I am not an art expert, I either like a painting or don't :) For me J.P. paintings were an unexpected "discovery". Among them I found the ONE meant for me and it gives me joy ever since. Now I know where to look for a painting in case of need. Moreover, I am especially pleased with the prices :) Saule Kvedariene
