Pekle

Riga, Latvia

 

“There’s a lot we don’t know about the past. What I try to do is push the veil of time and the unknown aside and create visions that help the modern viewer to experience the rituals of the past themselves.

 

“Pekle” is the name of the Latvian underworld and I submerge down into the earth, in the archaeological heritage of Latvian culture, but view it from a different, very personal point. I’m also not afraid to use black and paint the darker side of the folklore – the stranger, chaotic and primal beings that are part of the harmonic Latvian mythology.

 

In my illustration work, I combine digital and traditional tools to bring the modern and the ancient mythological ages together.”
