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. Based in Riga, artist continues to work as and illustrator. Currently Peteris is collaborating in various design projects and working for his upcoming solo show.
