Graduated from the Vilnius Academy of Arts with a Bachelor's and Master's degree.
Ideas for paintings come from observing one's own environment and then stealing details from it. These details more often than not come to me on their own and then I realise that yes, this must be important to me, and I only realise the importance of the moment and the detail much later. The characters in the paintings are often affected by the melancholy of everyday life and take their time to be with themselves.
I don't stick to one technique or one medium. I have noticed that I naturally look for different ways of expressing myself through painting, which is why the paintings themselves often look quite different. Often I combine oil painting with acrylics or spray paints, and sometimes markers in the same work. Almost every work is dominated by a figurative composition with large monochromatic areas. This is a way of combining two quite different art movements - easel painting and street art. Most of the works are characterised by a contoured line and a strong contrasting colour palette.
