Asta Kulikauskaite Krivickiene’s Style and Practice
For Asta, art is a way to share our feelings, dreams and innate tendencies and translate how we process and digest the world around us. Her paintings, therefore, are physical manifestations of music, movement and life. Nature, in particular, provides Asta with an infinite source of inspiration. She takes to the canvas to convey immensity, beauty, serenity, mystery, light and darkness. Asta uses diverse techniques and mediums, including oil, acrylic, watercolour, Chinese ink and traditional printmaking techniques. With an armoury of exotic colours and mixed media, the artist channels passion and experience through her paintbrush.
Exhibitions and Collections
Asta has exhibited in group and solo shows in Lithuania, as well as Luxembourg and Poland. Her work is in numerous private collections around the world. She received the 2020 Individual scholarship, LCC. The artist also offers private tuition and workshops.
