I am a self-taught visual artist from Lithuania. I was trained as a lawyer and spent over 5 years pursuing my career in an international bank, until I reached a breaking point when decided to quit, move to London and start new career in photography. Now I continue my practice in Lithuania since 2015.
During several past years, I took part in 15 personal and international exhibitions, was awarded in international contests, like Gregory Crewdson Uncanny, Photolux, CBRE Urban Photographer of the year, few to mention. My works have been acquired by several private and corporate Lithuanian, Swiss, French and British collectors.
My creative pattern, affected by previous experience in the law & finance system, is very rational and systematic. My images are clean and strictly organized. Therefore, even my documentary photos create surrealistic feeling. Ideas of my work mainly revolve around the city and architecture, where I search for a reflection of human being – the creator. However, the human is usually absent in my images, as the main subject of my work becomes the viewer himself. To reveal my ideas, I use the language of contradiction and ambiguity. Because I believe that the main reason for the self-development is an internal conflict that shakeup our patterns of thinking and thus broadens the ways we perceive the reality.
