EXDUCATION

ABOUT

Guntra Laivacuma is an artist and a graphic designer based in Eindhoven,
The Netherlands. In her work, she aims to inspire spectators to reflect on society by creating art that juxtaposes ‘serious’ and 'silly’ ideas of our world. 

‘Seriously Silly’ is a growing collection of artwork that investigates strange ideas and behaviours in our society. Prejudice, myths, feminism, war and the meaning of life are some of the topics Guntra explores. She uses second hand objects as a canvas and inspiration to reflect on the world through abstract portraits, vibrant colours and unusual characters.

Instead of putting more objects into the world, Guntra carefully selects these commodities to project another story and so another value on them. Guntra’s work helps her to better understand the world around her and find some comfort in this crazy, seriously silly world.

Sometimes the objects provides inspiration with it's shape, material, colour, weight or the initial 'purpose' of the object. Sometimes Guntra finds the inspiration by researching the history of the object's origin, looking at the country and year it has been produced, making parallels with social, economical, cultural and political influences. In any case, these objects underline the fact that everything and everyone is connected in one way or the other.
