I’m an artist Agne Kisonaite, but usually I go under pseudonym AgneArt.
My major is paintings, but I also do design furniture, handmade carpets, make art installations. My art pieces has won me Lithuanian national design prize ’15 and my art object ‘Lipstick Tower’ shown in Hong Kong has achieved World Guinness Record in 2015.
I have varied background of education in arts (have graduated 3 degrees at Vilnius Academy of Arts: graphics, visual and interior design) and experience that has contributed to the evolution of my unique style and perspective.
After my studies, through last 7 years as a professional artist, I have developed knowledge and techniques that allow me to bring others into my world full of bright colours and positive emotions. My subject of art is woman, feminine world, their consumerism and artificial beauty.
