Inga Gircyte is a multidisciplinary artist born and raised in Lithuania. Her journey began with a Bachelor’s degree in Theatre Directing before she relocated to Canada in 2011. In that same year, Inga embarked on the development of her painting and ceramics skills, eventually transitioning into a role as an art educator. In 2019, she completed her BFA in the Drawing and Painting program at OCAD University.
Inga’s work delves into both sculptural and painterly realms across various surfaces and mediums. Her creative process is influenced by her cultural heritage, drawing from her Lithuanian indigenous knowledge to explore connections between ecosystems and the spiritual reverence for them. This interplay between sculptural and two-dimensional work reflects the profound impact of her cross-cultural experiences and findings on foreign lands.
Recently, Inga made her home in Elora, where she operates a ceramic and painting studio within her residence.
