From oils, watercolors, drawings, graphics, and sculptures, films, photographs….Dali’s works evolved just as he did.

I’m a 25 yr-old artist from Lithuania. It all began in school, when I would get bored during class, I would start sketching. It was 5 years ago, when I drew my first sketch, which you see below.   My friends saw my drawings and encouraged and motivated me to give it a try.

March Spotlight Artist: Marina Abramovic

March 9, 2015 Hello and Good Morning! I know what your thinking, Ai Weiwei is supposed to be this month’s Spotlight Artist, but I’ve made a change. The reason is that March is Women’s History Month and to honor that I’ve decided to put the spotlight on performance artist, Marina Abramovic.   I really don’t have a lot to say about this artist. Not too much to say. When she started out her career as a performance artist, I’m sure people thought she was crazy, is there a reason for it and if there is, why? Abramovic, “The Grandmother of … Continue reading March Spotlight Artist: Marina Abramovic
