Vilija Vitkuté is a visual artist from Lithuania, currently living in Sweden. She wanted to find a new way to develop her artistic expression and eventually explored all the qualities and possibilities of the art form body art. She decided to combine all her skills, including body painting, paper crafting and her photography skills. The result was an artistic language that speaks for the relationship between nature and humans.

She has travelled the world creating different projects with body art, from the mountains in Morocco to the barren landscapes of Lofoten, Norway. Vilija finds inspiration in the world of nature to create her vibrant and colorful body art.
– I used to spend most of my time in nature because it is where I find myself free, and it has no borders and no limits. There I take in expressions from mountains, water and colors. It gives me so much energy to create and be who I am, says Vilija.
