Inga Darguzyte




I am 37 years old graphic artist, live and professionally based in Vilnius, Lithuania. I am at least 10 years of continuous professional experience in the Visual Arts and project coordinating. In 1999 I graduated Vilnius Fine Arts academy, graphic art department (printmaking). From 2000 I am a member of Lithuanian Artist’s association. Since 1997 I take part in the international and Lithuanian art projects, exhibitions. During 2003-2007 I was curator of Vilnius graphic art centre. From 2006 I teach art history in the secondary and printmaking, composition in the private Art School for Children & Youth. Since 2007 I am freelance curator, organize exchange, educational programs. I have participated in various seminars, Forums (PVAF, Scotland, UK) and workshops (Rauma, Finland, 2005; Boras, Sweden, 2004), residency programs from 2003 in Scandinavia, UK, Spain. I have been creating graphic works and paper objects for ten years.

My art inspired by travel is dominated by unique motifs of mythologized landscape-timeless image without any location reference. My prints are less about representing the geological force of landscape, but rather about re-enacting then manually through own hand and arm movement. Prints create not so much an image, but rather a feeling of intensity and force that can be equated with the larger dynamics of the natural world. My life on the move (besides actual printmaking, also acts as a curator) resulted in a type of a universal travelling artist.

I have made 18 solo exhibitions and participated in 13 workshops and symposiums in Lithuania and abroad, won international awards.
