I am a visual artist/expressionist painter originally born in Lithuania, since 2005 I have lived and worked in Dublin. I’ve been studying in Ireland since 2010 and I hold a Master’s and BA degrees in Fine Art – Painting, from the National College of Art and Design. I explore the themes of urbanisation, socio-political injustice, modern culture, LGBTQ+ & mental health.
My current research is based on inequity, harassment and persecution of the LGBTQ+ community in Ireland and worldwide. From my personal experience of homophobia and international news of aggression and murders of LGBTQ+ people worldwide, I am collecting stories and visual resources which I transform into paintings.
