Visvaldas Morkevičius (b.1990) is a Lithuanian artist who uses photographic medium to widely explore portraiture. He, in his own terms, “collects realities” by observing the daily surroundings of his subjects, uses self-analysis in order to look into the possibilities of self-portraits. By using diverse Low-Fi and Hi-Fi aesthetics working with materials from classical analog photography, to modern digital tools, V. Morkevičius manipulates the sense of time in his works and its perception.
Works by Visvaldas Morkevičius have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions around Europe, are held in museum and private art collections such as MO Museum, Lewben Art Foundation, SEB Bank Art Collection.
