Gretė Tvarkūnaitė is a visual artist and a writer who often express herself in artistic, poetic, philosophical and political context. Photography and videography are her main fields and thus in 2016 she gained a First-class honours degree in BA Photography at the University of Huddersfield. Her work has been presented in group exhibitions at Creative Arts Hub, Mirfield (2015, UK), Byram Arcade, Huddersfield (2015, 2016, UK), University of Huddersfield (2016, UK), Universities Show at Hong Kong (2016, CN) and The Hepworth Wakefield gallery (2016, UK) where she gave a talk about her book "myth of utopia". For the same project, she has been awarded to be one of only three recipients in the UK of a major bursary by the Association for Photography in Higher Education (APHE, 2016) and Dean's Award for Contemporary Practice (University of Huddersfield, 2016). The main subject that interests her and therefore occupies her work is a study of people: their relationship to the physical environment, and to the economic, political and intellectual conditions that de­termine them. Gretė also paints, draws and creates various publications: from design to text, from zines to books.
