In Praise Of The Pencil By Aiste Stancikaite
The delicate illustrations of Aiste Stancikaite pair precision pencil work with an abstract use of digital mediums, creating fine lined images with a focus on detail and texture.
The Lithuanian-born, Berlin-based creative prefers a combination of non-traditional and traditional illustrative techniques for her work. She explains, “The combination of these methods match in terms of precision and detail, yet oppose each other in visual execution.” This gives her work a greater visual variety and provides interesting context to the clean lines and messy scrawl that inhabit her images. Stancikaite explains this desire to utilize technology to us; “I’m very interested in bringing the physicality of drawing and manual skill into the current digital culture, I want to make it more accessible and relevant to today’s audience.”
