Biografia 

A circle of time is inexorably rotating as if it was a well-stained clock mechanism. We all, no matter we work, no matter we create, we love, we dream or perform our role in an endless time performance whose directors and actors are we ourselves, are the part of this mechanism…

I was born 20th December, 1963 in Anykščiai in the family of teachers. I grew up accompanied by music and arts. That probably stimulated me to choose this direction of art. I graduated in applied art techniques in Telšiai Fine Art Technical School in 1989 acquiring an artistic metal work processing profession. I had been working in Klaipėda art complex for several years and when it fell to the ground I undertook other activities. I have been working in the sphere of interior decoration for more than a decade. Klaipėda fully tied me. I have created family here and I have been working here until now.

I immersed into the new type of arts some years ago. It overpowered me as soon as I got acquainted with it. That is a very strange type of arts full of unexpected solutions and inventions and it fits to one word “Steampunk.“ I use the most diverse materials for work starting from wares, antiquarians and ending with rubbish that is useless. It is a pleasure for me that I can help to transform an item that was thrown and is useless giving it the opportunity to exist in a new shape, in a new form as if I continued its existence in an already artistic expression. I present my works and advertise them mostly on the Internet. A steampunk style lovers from Lithuania, Netherlands, Germany, France,Polish, Spain, China, USA and Australia have acquired some of my works. I want to share my works with you and I hope that it will help to find myself.

NIGHT KING

I want to present the latest sculpture I created myself called The King of the Night. It may seem to you that you've seen it somewhere (I think in the same way). No wonder because it looks similar to the bad guy from HBO series Game of Thrones. When creating the sculpture, I kept thinking about it. Of course, I constructed the sculpture from what I had, so it’s not identical, but similarities can be discovered. The whole sculpture making process and the right details search took me about 7 months. It weights 13 kg and is made of metal only. The main parts are from various motorcycles, scooters and bicycles. I also used old household utensils. The parts are connected with screws and rivets. I didn’t use painting this time because I wanted the work to look original and understandable to everyone. I like it, I hope you like it too.
