Peteris Lidaka

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.
Artist developed a love for the abstract, expressive drawing and model
making, he dedicates his practice to a passionate fantasizing of parallel
worlds that invites a daring to overstep the cliches of contemporary human
minds. Currently artist is collaborating in various design projects and
working for his upcoming solo show.
