Jolita Vaitkutė

This young artist is already quite famous due to her original artwork – she creates installations, performances, illustrations and portraits using rather unconventional materials, such as food, earth, or... trash! The works of the artist reflect topical issues of political and social life, and mark historical events. For example, for the approaching centenary of the restoration of the State of Lithuania, J. Vaitkutė has created portraits of prominent Lithuanian personalities from Lithuanian soil, and, in order to promote recycling, she has made portraits of well-known representatives of the pop world. Reflecting the constantly changing world, most of the author’s works are short-lived and are destroyed immediately after the exhibition (if made of food – eaten).
