I'm Rūta Cyrolytė, printmaker, illustrator, and a fourth year BA Applied graphics student in the Vilnius Academy of Arts in Kaunas, Lithuania.
In my creative practice I like to dip my fingers into many different mediums and mix them, apply the principles of one to another, and see what shakes out. Mainly I work with printmaking, illustration, graphic design, and publishing, but I never shy away from an experiment or a new learning opportunity.
I'd like to say my work follows themes of personal exploration, growth, change, inner turmoil, but sometimes I just like drawing silly illustrations of things I think are Cool.
I hate answering emails, but feel free to write me anyway! Or follow me on Instagram to see all the chaos that ensues.
