Gedvile Bunikyte is an internationally renowned artist and spiritual teacher. She was born in Lithuania in the 80’s and lives and works in Hong Kong. Gedvile's art depicts fragmentary captures of a reality actively accessible, but for most, not visible.
How did you get into art?
I was looking for a way to connect to spirit. I didn’t grow up in a very spiritual environment, but I knew intuitively that there is more to life than what the eye can see. My soul was looking for something that would show the way to the higher realms. I was looking for ways to experience connection to life deeply, to strengthen my connection to spirit. Art was my first spiritual teacher.
How would you describe your style? What makes your work special?
I would describe my style as geometric abstraction. The work is special and magical because, it has power to transform, it bypasses intellect and reaches deeper, more subtle layers of one’s psyche. It has a vibration that invites one to expand, to become more of life itself.
How do you go about developing your work?
I let it come through me, I pray, I read, I make love, I feel, I stay grateful, I let it teach me. I let the work develop me.
Who or what influences you?
Spiritual masters, people deeply connected to their truth, nature.
Make us curious. What is planned next?
I plan less and less these days. I practice experiencing things more. I honestly don’t know what’s next for me and I am at peace with that. Of course if I am lucky life will go on, I will make more work, do some shows, go to an ashram, stay in the jungle … it’s all ok, I am grateful for whatever comes, I don’t have goals. As long i as I get to be who I really am and be in service to spirit I am good.
