Daiva Staškevičienė

Daiva Staškevičienė 7Daiva Staškevičienė was born in 1968 in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, formerly USSR. Illustrator and graphic artist, she works in the fields of print (etching), miniature, posters, illustrates books. Her east Europe icon influences are clear, moreover I see in her works a kind of “russian steampunk”, a society based on gold and belonging to a “high”  and “low” class, not based on steam energy. And this world based on belongings and opulence is falling apart in Daiva’s works. It’s the end of a golden age. Follow her here.

Daiva Staškevičienė è nata a Vilnius, capitale della Lituania, già parte dell’Unione Sovietica. Daiva è una illustratrice e artista grafica, le piace lavorare con la stampa, l’incisione, le miniature, realizzare poster e libri per bambini. L’influenza delle icone russe è evidente, oltre a questo io ci vedo una sorta di “steampunk russo”, non più energia a vapore che muove il mondo, ma oro e differenze di classe. E questo mondo di opulenza sta crollando nei suoi lavori. La fine di un’età dell’oro. Seguitela qui.
