Petras Kardokas was born in 1950 in a small Lithuanian Village and since 1968 has been living in Lithuania's second largest city, Kaunas.
In 1973 Kardokas graduated from Kaunas Polytechnic and had a job that was not related to art at all until the late 1980's when he followed his first love and attended the A. Vilpisauskas Art School. His hobby is also associated with art and creativity. He loves building and sailing catamarans. He even won the main prize in catamaran matches for 4 times.
Since 1990 he has devoted his life to painting. Naturalistic painter's works reveal that he sees the world with the eyes of the impressionist. At the same time one can notice that he is a dreamer and very concentrated when painting his works. He paints two types of paintings, landscapes and mystic, cosmic compositions.
Kardokas is interested in the reality that he sees and he tries to depict this reality in his works. He is painting not only the contemporary Kaunas sights but he is trying to revive the old Kaunas views that were common in the end of the 19th century or before the World War I. Sometimes he leaves the naturalism and paints abstract compositions. Kardokas allows himself to dream as he realizes that the unpretentious simplicity is the source of pleasure.
