    Biography 

    Sandra Stanionyte is a Lithuanian-born multidisciplinary artist. She graduated from Fine Art Contemporary Art Practice,  at Royal College of Art (2016) and Design, Inter-architecture at BA(Hons) at Gerrit Rietveld Academy (2013), studied at Vilnius Academy of Arts (2008-2011). She is a recipient of Individual Artist Grant from Lithuanian Council for Culture, Villiers David Art&Travel Award 2015, Kooshk Artist Residency Award (Kara 2015), Iran, and Royal College of Art Fine Art Bursary. In 2015 she was invited to perform during the Christian Marclay exhibition at White Cube Bermondsey in London. In 2012 together with studio FedLev, she won the “Do-It-Yourself” competition for the extension of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam that was nominated Amsterdamse Architectuur Prijs 2019. Sandra has presented her work in numerous countries in Europe, The Middle East, and Asia.

    Sandra Stanionytė is a multidisciplinary artist whose works range from performance art to painting. As Stanionytė works with multiple disciplines, she does not simply separate them more so she fuses them. As it can be seen in her paintings – they pulsate with physical expression, strokes create performance-like energy and a vast array of gestural meanings. In some cases, she implements words into her canvases to create a new layer of meaning, new keys in trying to decipher her works. Her paintings carry explosive energy that can only come from an inner world and deep contemplative nature of utilizing one’s emotions and converting it all into pieces of art. Using her own body in performances she in a way extends it and puts it onto her paintings, leaving a unique, personal and energetic mark. While looking at Stanionytė’s work one can easily spot the flowing, transformative nature with which she not only imposes her own views on art but materializes it in different and ever-changing, dynamic manner.
