Jurga Nekrasaite

Jurga Nekrasaite (b.1987, Vilnius, Lithuania) lives and works in Oslo, Norway. Jurga is forging high-intensity connections with her audiences through her practice centred around acrylics, pastels, and pencils. The energy she imbues within each of her works speaks to a sense of freedom and sensuality that inevitably emanates an aura of acceptance, part of her commitment to supporting the LGBTQ+ community, non-binary and all people in search of their authentic selves. She romanticises and normalises the love and passion between men, while everyone is still aiming to show a woman’s body as a priority and as a standard in today’s contemporary art world.
For Jurga, it is important to feel an emotional connection with a piece, how it speaks to her. The viewer needs to feel it too - this energy exchange with a piece is essential to her. Her philosophy is freedom of expression and freedom of being oneself through body language, coming from the place of deep emotions and inspirations. Through colour, Jurga aims to show passionate, sensual, sexual and melancholic relationships. All of it comes from a deeply emotional place that heals
and soothes one's soul.
The artist received a BA in Fine Arts (painting) at Vilnius, Lithuania. Her work is sold worldwide.
