Aistė Stancikaitė (b.1988, Lithuania) works in monochromatic drawing and painting, achieving texture and depth with the detailed handling of tones of purple and red. The artist challenges perceptions of reality by the sheer perfectionism of her approach. A significant part of her work deals with the human figure, the portrayed characters’ anatomy and personality, appearing as both familiar acquaintances and fictional strangers. Through the effort to capture sensible details she demonstrates not only her technical skills but also her generosity towards the other.
Stancikaitė works on a wide range of commercial projects with clients such as Apple, Instagram, Dior and Porsche, amongst others, whilst also developing her personal art practice. Stancikaitė’s work has been recognised with several awards, including the ADC Annual Awards and Communication Arts, as well as exhibited internationally.
