Jurate and the Honey Bee – Painting
Jurate Honey Bee
Once upon a time, there was a bee architect wanting to build a honeycomb in art nouveau style. He flew to the Baltic region in hope to find inspirations as well as unique building materials. One day he heard soft, sad conch music playing in a stormy sea. The musician turned out to be Jurate, the mermaid Goddess of the Sea, who still mourned her dead lover Kastytis after a thousand years. Touched by her love story, the bee architect decided to contract his new honeycomb out of Jurate’s amber tears.

Toyism paintings are nothing if not bizarre but recognizable imageries drawn from reality, the surreal, and fantasy. The intense play of lines, shapes, dots and colors is intended to help open the viewer’s mind. And to critical thinking about the human condition in the present day world. Toyism is figurative, contemporary and based on a story. These stories can cover all kinds of subjects, from happy to critical or serious subjects. Toyism paintings are very labour intensive. Every painting consist of several layers of paint. Making the colours bright and vibrant and able to withstand the test of time.
Paintings are created by a mixed group of professional artists from around the world with diverse cultural backgrounds and working in various disciplines. Yet all artists have a like-minded view of how to experience this art and inspire each other. No matter their own backgrounds or beliefs, everyone can express themselves in this style without losing their own value or feeling. Therefore every toyist can influence and enrich the style. Hence toyists tell their own story and depict it.
