Petras Lincevicius currently lives and works in New York, USA
Petras Lincevicius (born in 1990) is a Lithuanian artist currently based in New York City. He had solo and group projects in Lithuania, Poland, Berlin, New York and Abu Dhabi. He graduated with a BA and MA program of painting studies from Vilnius Academy of Arts at Vilnius, Lithuania.
Although my thinking is deeply rooted in painting theory, my art practices are interdisciplinary. This feature comes out organically from methodologies based on artistic research, which I apply to create specific art projects. The main theme which I reflect is the place and local identity in a global environment. While my practice mostly originates from the ideas of Philosophical Philotopy, Genius Loci and Biomythography, I invoke different art disciplines and theories on principles of temporary relations, which are dictated by a specific creative process.
Working in a field of Identity theme I use theory of Philosophical Philotopy which defines form of thinking, rooted in a particular place — the native land. In my research, I blend such things as Ancestry, concepts of different forms of identity, belonging, origin, and “home”. By combining history, biography and myth in epic narrative form, I talk about all these things as a story teller from my point of view.
