About the Artist:
I was born in Lithuania in 1990. I got a bachelor’s degree in scenography in 2013. In 2016 I got my master’s degree in monumental painting. I live and work as a painter in Vilnius.
The images that I paint and which attract me, exist in some imaginary reality. Surreal painted worlds suggest subconscious fantastical beasts and also usual to us creatures of this world. In my creations fantasy is pouring to reality in different levels, the boundary between real and unreal disappears. The most dominant are mystical images that have a lot of materiality. With realistic view, materialistic forms of the objects I create my own reality.
