About Julija Gumbrytė
There are no upcoming events
It is nice to meet you even if I can't see you, but if you are reading this that means you are interested in me and my work. I appreciate that.
I'm self-taught I didn't study how to draw or paint because I didn't have money, but I feel that art is not about doing it the right way, but to express yourself and that something so deep inside you. This is the most difficult way, but at the same time this road is the most interesting and inspiring.
I am young, but I saw a lot in these years I lived, life kicked me, beat me in all differnet ways, I grew up too soon, but I grow up tough and always kept smiling to the world. I grew up happy with huge love to everything: to the sun, to the bird in the sky, to the leaves falling down on autumn, to the people, even if I don't know them. No matter what, I just kept loving with all my heart.
Why do I want to sell my art? I'm just a little girl in a big world, but I know that this little girl can be heard all over the world, and this is the way that can help me shout out loud and everyone will be able to hear my voice. When someone have my work I feel connected to them, even if I didin't saw a person or even talk to him. Then I feel that I have a bigger purpose in my life. I want to be connected with a lot of people by the hearts all over the world. I want to be heard.
ABOUT MT WORK:
I love people... there is something about them that drives my mind. I love their history, I love how different they are. People are the most beautiful in the world for me and so deep that even they do not understand themselves. They are like little miracles. I love their faces, body and all the lines and shapes that they have, because it speaks about their history. Sometimes I see people on the street and I'm getting inspired by some of them so much that I just stare at them, somehow I feel connected, I'm feeling that they have something that I want to see and put it on the canvas
When I have huge feelings in me I'm starting to paint. I do not know what will happen, and every time I see the end it is the face, a human face, that screams something and express me inside so much that it gives me chills. I am somehow connected to people so much. I love all: bad or good, old or young, I love how they are unique and different and so beautiful in their own way.
We can't experience everything in our lifes, but we can see it in others, feel it, touch it, listen to it, this is the way we live our lifes and feel and see everything that the world can offer, this is the way we can live our short lifes „forever“. So isn't it just amazing that other people can give you "eternal life"?
