Juozas Pranckevičius was born on 26 of October in Vilnius. He graduated from architecture studies. He is a member of Lithuanian Artists’ Union and of the artists' group “Individualists”.
Juozas Pranckevičius is a man “burning within”, a person of enormous inner strength. In his paintings, landscape, seascape and urban scenery motifs prevail. Larger part of his landscapes is painted in Plein Air, thus the most prevalent and distinctive features of Juozas artworks, such as colour harmony, the variety of shades, and forceful and emotional brush strokes are evident in the paintings. There are some unique traits as well. For example, in the urban landscapes the author pays attention to the composition, in the countryside landscapes he concentrates on colour scheme, and in the seascapes he focuses on conveying the space and emotion. This is how artist of monumental art Liudvikas Pocius
describes the works of Juozas Pranckevičius.
