Peteris Lidaka is a self-defined traveler in space, who plays with countless devised forms of flying creatures and objects. With participation in a number of solo and group shows, the artist’s works bring out intense, surreal, unexpected, metaphorical and fragile qualities through a wide range of disciplines: drawing, illustration, sculpture, animation and photography.
During his MA studies at London Central St Martins, Peteris developed a love for the abstract, expressive drawing and model making. The artist dedicates his practice to a passionate fantasizing of parallel worlds that invites a daring to overstep the clichés of contemporary human minds. Inventions of expressive imaginary characters on paper often become sculptural objects in his animations and advertisements.
