Daukantė holds two degrees: a BA in Graphic Design (Vilnius Academy of Arts) and a MA in Information Design (Design Academy Eindhoven). The later is renowned for encouraging conceptual thinking and experimentation, which led her to seek inspiration in the opposite direction. It’s the casual everyday situations that she finds most intriguing.
Often Daukantė’s idea for a drawing comes from a pun. Being visually minded, she has a soft spot for words. Words tend to suggest a narrative that builds on throughout her drawing process.
Popular culture is another dimension Daukantė exploits in her work as it emphasizes the absurdity of our world. Whether it’s Cher saying her last goodbye only to do another farewell tour the next year or Tiger Woods managing his infidelities in the woods, everyday is filled with great stories to laugh and marvel at.
Always looking for new work,
