Gitana Vaicyte grew up in Lithuania, but for the last 15 years have been living and working in London, where currently she is in her final year (BA) studies of Fine Arts at University. For a long time prior to that, painting was Gitana´s personal hobby.
Years later she enrolled on numerous short painting courses, a 12 month private tuition at a London based artist studio, and two years intensive course of Fine Art at City Lit in London.
Growing up in a silent family, with deaf parents and being slightly deaf herself, forced Gitana quietly to watch and observe people around her every day, as that helped her to understand them better. Up until today she is fascinated by it, and try to bring those observations into her painting’s using different mediums.
No surprise, that most of Gitana´s paintings are figurative or portrait paintings, painted often in bold colours, as that is her interpretation of how she see people, in a bold, unique, drastically strong, crazy, shy, passionate way etc.
