I create books.
& artworks related to books.
Being a one-piece creation, a book can be a collection of different works. A closed book is like a sculpture while listing the pages of a book is a performance that unintentionally engages the observer/reader. Each opened page is a new piece of art. The multi-layered nature of the book enables the expression of my ideas.
In my creations, I widely analyse the phenomenon of communication through the psychological, social approach. The various processes of disseminating, receiving, accepting information inspired the majority of my works, in which I further developed the perception of topics such as false memory, information errors, and misinformation. One can notice a tread that some of my works are a continuation of the former ones. Or new works present my different approach to what I discussed earlier. While creating, I don’t deny or hide the changing attitude because it also depends on my ability to receive and perceive information.
I contribute to creating books in the publishing house Dvi Tylos. We have been cooperating since 2017. At the publishing house, I work on book layouts, and I am responsible for the submissions of books for printing and other graphic design assignments.
Since 2019, we have been cooperating with Kaunas Photography Gallery. I design gallery publications, work on the visual identity of the Gallery, and create the visual identity for the annual Kaunas Art Book Fair event.
While teaching in the study programme of Applied Graphics at Kaunas Faculty of Vilnius Academy of Arts, I share my experience accumulated in book design. I teach the structure, artist’s book, supervise creative internships and the development of bachelor theses.
