Migle Sapokaite was born in 1999 in a small town in Lithuania called Utena, currently lives in Lithuania’s capital Vilnius. She used to work in graphic design field as a digital marketing designer but decided to quit her job to pursue her artistic desire full time. Since she was very little, her parents noticed that she had a huge desire to create art and enrolled her in art school where she studied for 5 years and after that she studied graphic design studies in Vilnius Design College for 3 years.

How did you get into art? 

The desire to create art has been with me my whole life. During my childhood I used to paint on all sorts of things like paper, walls, bedsheets, textbooks, sand and clothes. Now that desire has translated onto a canvas on which I feel most satisfied by expressing my inner world, which has always been the goal.

How would you describe your style? What makes your work special?

Resulting artwork reflects the search of comfort in our rapidly accelerating world. This feeling is revealed through the motifs of nature - textures, natural colors, rendition of plant and human silhouettes. Recently I feel inspired by cubism and surrealism but over time the technique and the presenation evolve naturally. Therefore I allow myself constantly experiment and not get attached to certain colors genres or techniques.

How do you go about developing your work?

Experimentation is one of my the main ways I try to develop as an artist. By searching inspiration witihin other artists online, being curious about trying different techniques, I am able to keep my work fresh so its not too overly repetetive. I also read literature about various types of art and often visit art galleries and exhibitions.

Who or what influences you?

I am constantly inspired by nature and its textures, colours, shapes, patterns. Almost every part and detail of nature appears on my canvas

Make us curious. What are you planning to do next?

For the future I am considering to create my first physical exhibition and see how people react to my work in real life. I believe one of the main points of an artwork is to inspire people and make them have some sort of emotions.
