About the author
Jūratė Sližytė (Slyžė)
„Creativity is a constant observation of the world, the transformation of accumulated sensations through one's personal prism into concrete material. During the work process, the thought, the vision becomes a specific object or work, which becomes the connection between the creator and the viewer.
To create art means to study diligently, to improve, to search for new forms of expression throughout one's life, to try to achieve one's "Truth" and to never stop. That "Truth" is usually very simple, but the road to it is long and often winding.”
Jūratė works with various graphic techniques, water-colours, acrylic, creates various objects, also from recycled materials. Every artist has their own philosophy when creating their works.
