Young Painter Prize (YPP) is taking place for the eighth time and is one of the most important art events in the Baltic countries, held since 2009. This project combines the Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian young artists’ common goal – to present their national identity, art school practices and personal creative potential. According to art critics, the project has become a kind of Baltic younger generation painting chronicler, an important platform for young artists.
The Young Painter Prize welcomes the participation of young artists from three Baltic States (Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia). The main aim of the project is to present the brightest and most promising painters of the younger generation and to create an opportunity for public access to such dynamic new art. Moreover, this projects aims to help its target audience in both Lithuania and abroad – art collectors, managers, curators – discover new talent in Baltic States.
