Ringailė Demšytė

Ringailė Demšytė (born 1998) is a Lithuanian visual artist who has been fascinated by mushrooms since a young age. Her parents affectionately called her “little mushroom" and her childhood was filled with fairytales and drawings centered around them. Recently, as Ringailė paid tribute to her childhood and continued to explore the world of fungi through research-based projects, fungi became an inseparable part of her artistic practice. As someone passionate about visual communication, Ringailė strives to challenge her artistic practice by questioning the boundaries between real and fictitious, using digital tools and printed mediums. In addition, she explores (fictional) languages and alternative sounds through visual experimentation. In 2023, Demšytė completed her BA in Design at Willem de Kooning Academy with Honors and her work has been shown / acquired throughout the Netherlands and abroad (Lisbon, PT; New York, US; Warsaw, PL).
