Norwich University of Art (www.nua.ac.uk)
After successful time doing exhibitions and enjoying painting I decided to get back to university and do my Masters in Fine Art. It supposed to be a full time one year studies, unfortunately, due to Covid-19 my studies extended to the start of 2021. I looked deeper into my created theme #pancakefaces and was challenged to create figure, explored it not just in painting but other mediums too. Most rewarding experience was working with bronze - a true art school experience. Again, due to virus I wasn't able to use all the facilities that on different circumstances university has to offer. For example, in second term I was determined to learn screen printing and etching. As it was firmly in my plans, I purchased lino cutting kit and did some printing work at home instead. In that way I wasn't feeling like I ruined my plan completely. Overall, great academic experience and gain of degree. Thanks to this experience I have a deeper understanding about my art, my heritage and connections between Lithuanian and British folklore.
Studies completed with Masters degree in Fine Art (Pass).

I attended short courses during 2012 and 2013.

Nothing beats the opportunity to visit best London's hotels like Haymarket Hotel and The Soho Hotel where we discussed and been in person in luxurious artistic interiors. Furthermore, attended Restaurant Zédel where our attention was brought to exclusive interior details.
100 Design Projects course with inspiring Rod Judkins. The course proved me that I am able to think fast and more important meet final expectations, also, able to suggest an alternative way of thinking. In a day we had numerous mind-bending exercises that took from 5 to 10 minutes.
Both courses certificated of attendance.
A three year Interior Design studies. A wide range tuition with a lot of practical work. I believe during this time I gained most experience, artistry and skills. Both life and education. Beside studying had to do work practice. Both times teamed up with architects and helped them on their daily tasks.
Studies completed after final exam with BA degree in Interior Design

You want to see your family and friends in it. No doubt it was the best choice I could make. Exhibition contained 15 paintings that I made in 2017 and early 2018. Thank you to every one who was part of this. Location www.pankultura.lt
The Brick Lane Gallery London
2018 September 12th was taking part at Contemporary Painting Exhibition. Specially for exhibition in London created a series called Y.O.C - Yellow Oxygen Cylinder in which painted green areas of my surroundings where I usually take dog for a walk. It's pictured with all sorts of animals which sometimes look abandoned in this concrete jungles. To bring attention to them I used a yellow balloon on a red string. In one of the paintings I involved a human being too. A very typical East Londoner that is easy to spot in the parks. No offence East Londoners :) Location www.thebricklanegallery.com

Contemporary Art Station Shibuya, Tokyo
2019 March 5th - 2019 March 11th Taking part of the international contemporary art exhibition at Contemporary Art Station Shibuya, Tokyo. I submitted my work digitally as it was printed as poster. Shared a painting called 'Augustus'. I particularly chose it as it has a very colourful personality and just pops out. Also, one of my personally favourites. It was an amazing achievement to start a year of 2019.
Interim Exhibition 'The New Collection'
2019 November 15th A one day student collaboration between art students and curation students. Working in small groups with assigned location in the art school building. For this particular exhibition I painted diptych 'Freddie: Admiring Birds'. It was beneficial to learn levels of communication and compare work methods between groups. Also, a useful time to talk in front of peers, lecturers and guest curator about my work, art practise and theme.
Online Exhibition 'Masters Project Mini Exhibition'
From 2020 December Due to Covid-19 it was so much harder to find spaces to show my art. In my opinion showing art online isn't ideal, as it is harder to feel artists process, artwork scale and it reduces overall experience. However, showing art this way is a solution and instead of opening a door we are able to open a window. Usually having an ability to choose any space for art we aim for something big and dreamy. In this case I decided to show my work in a space that I would've been able to afford in real life. So it is small but it perfectly connects paintings in some vision cycle. Due to not being able to make a 3D sculpture for this website I placed an object where I would place my sculpture 'Transegging'. The placement allows to see artwork from any angle. Visit exhibition here.
