West Den Haag former American Embassy (mixed media artworks) | Personal project (Auste Parulyte), The Hague, 2019
My passion for architecture is revealed in my ideogram series from cities around the world. What are ideograms? They’re my mixed media artworks where I marry the real-life architecture and other urban objects captured in photography with graphics. Usually capturing architecture in photos means taking an iconic, monumental-looking, hygienic photo of the building which looks nice but somehow not-true on a magazine cover. By creating ideograms I am searching for a more personalised connection with the architecture and the urban environment in general, reinterpreting them as well as offering a different perspective on it.
