BORN 02 06 1969, Kaunas, Lithuania
Member of Lithuanian artists association since 1997
Participant of exhibitions since 1987
Artist works in the sphere of print, instalations, TV show design, fashion design, accessories, porcelain decorating. Also as a curator of contemporary art projects.

In brief: Art critics Ignas KAZAKEVIČIUS and Iveta ASTRAUSKAITĖ discuss about the creative works of the artist Jūratė Rekevičiūtė.

I. K.: ” I believe that the author relates two different poles as a personality: she is a rather known artist, designer and “produces” such non-prestigious art as graphics, which lacks recognition among artists themselves as painting and “new arts” prevail among them.”

I. A.: “Every work of Jūratė has the destructive character – it ruins some old order, contradicts the system of values, traditional outlook, stereotypes, it also offers an alternative at the same time.“

I. K.: ”J. Rekevičiūtė is a real pain for the ones who consume art and culture with white gloves, i.e., listening to other opinions and not trusting their inner voice. We have to note that snobs evaluate J. Rekevičiūtė but fear to fall in love with her as her art needs understanding, they need to learn to understand it. (…) I would call Jūratė a representative of subculture – she has admirers in every age group, she has continuers of her ideas and even plagiarisers.“
