The food is used to make art, where the playfulness starts. “Anything could be art what we touch”. This work could be described as mixed media, as you you’re using many different materials. During the COVID-19 outbreak, Evaldas Gulbinas trying new possibilities to make art out of it. “- I feel I am stuck in my room, where I can use anything I want to make artwork. I need to stay at home due to pandemic…” Free minded ideas could be mixed with materials which are matter to the artwork. Simplicity plays a big part in the artworks. Evaldas often drawing digitally to get quick ideas for his sculptures or mixed media work.
By drawing digitally, Evaldas created an iconic imaginative character. The character in his digital drawings replicates daily life motifs, by expressing them with irony, humor, and love situations. The persona in the drawings could look “mad” which is funny. It gives the opportunity to express today’s situation of irony in the world due to pandemics. Evaldas using creativity to “run away” from reality and move on artistically. Using domestic materials and making digital drawings makes playfulness of imagination. It gives the opportunity to reinstall objects in the head. It gives satisfaction to explore and express concepts of the art. Makes art and ideas unique. “- I believe art could be played, as music, just needs to let the free mind to go”. Using digital and domestic materials to create artwork could be a fight itself, which is an interesting combination. Two different materials to play with. “- I often analyze my practice through media, to create art”.
