Bio

Martynas Ivinskas

Martynas Ivinskas

I was born on December 15th, 1976 in Kaunas, Lithuania. After one year we’ve moved to the capital city of Lithuania – Vilnius. Here I started my school, where I was attending progressive art classes.

From the early days I was involved in the art world – my father is a photographer and mother was an architect. Our house was always full of people from the art world. I got to know them personally and grew up surrounded by them.

In highschool I was attending music school, where I played the cello. This is still a frequent image in my paintings. I love the cello.

I’ve started to paint in 1990, but it was just the silence before the storm. My personal awakening occurred in February of 2003 in NYC, and I called that POFICK. Finally my art was given form and meaning. I imagined that if Fluxus exists, Pofick could exist as well, and not only in paintings, but in other forms of art and as a unique view of the world and a type of lifestyle.

Currently I live in Vilnius, Lithuania and Los Angeles, USA.
