Mad Skills Monday 062: Arthur Lugauskas

Welcome to Mad Skills Monday, where we showcase top work from young creatives to bring some inspiration to beat the post-weekend blues. Today we feature Lithuanian artist Arthur Lugauskas, producing wall paintings and installations by “just pretending to know what I’m doing”.

Power Tool: Thoughts
Power Song: Runaway – Kanye West
Power Snack: Himalayan goji berries and raw cacao nibs

Having studied art and architecture, Arthur Lugauskas combines the two mediums into large-scale wall pieces with tape. These artworks consist of a montage of 3D forms, some more chaotic than others, and experiments with lighting them. He labels this style as ‘piop art‘, short for ‘perspectives inside of perspectives art’, light-heartedly describing his creative process as a positive stream of consciousness that doesn’t take itself too seriously. You can read the full artist statement of his five piop art walls in his book, ‘don’t say anything, ever‘.
