The Melbourne "Herald Sun" on Saturday, January 3, 2004 nominated a list of 10 Australians to watch in 2004. The list includes the Australian Lithuanian unconventional artist, Danius Kesminas, who finds himself in the illustrious company of the Opposition Leader Mark Latham, Education Minister Brendon Nelson and other noted personages of business, politics, sport and entertainment, also listed by the "Herald Sun" among the 10 Australians to watch.
"Never Mind the Pollocks - Here's the Histrionics" is the title of an exhibition of the work of Danius Kesminas, which is being held in Sydney at the Darren Knight Gallery.
Danius also performs with "The Histrionics" band, described as "a concept-art-(heritage)-rock-cover band", who gave a live performance after the opening of the exhibition on December 6, 2003. The band has performed with great success in Germany, Austria, Holland and Luxembourg.

The exhibition will continue 20 January - 7 February, 2004 at the Darren Knight Gallery, 840 Elizabeth Street, Waterloo.
