Statement

Krista Augius is a multimedia artist who lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. Her artwork includes working with oil painting, sculpture, installation, photography and short film. She has an art studio at the Santa Monica Art Studios in Santa Monica, CA.

Her artwork explores capturing the surreal and magical moments of nature, mythology and science related to human perception.

A recent body of work, Mythical Codes, explores relationships between optical illusions and their effects on the brain while incorporating contemporary representation of folkloric lithuanian symbology that have historical roots in Indian Vedic mythology as well as historical transcontinental influence in South America during pre-Columbian times.

Krista is mainly a self taught artist from childhood. In 2006, she learned the Mische technique at a visionary art course in Cadaques, Spain which is the hometown of El Salvador Dali.  

The Mische technique, which is a Dutch Master style of painting from the 1500's that uses a combination of oil paints and resins to render a luminous, resonant realism. The visual effects created by working in the mixed technique essentially rely upon the phenomenon of light refracting through many subsequent layers of paint. Her university and graduate studies were in science and she holds degrees in Biology and a clinical doctorate in physiotherapy that encourage the exploration of her art inspiration from nature and the human form.

She has exhibited in national and international art shows and her art has appeared in movies such as Iron Man III and Fast and Furious 7. 

Krista takes pride in being from a family of artists such as her grandfather, Paulius Augius, a lithographer and her great uncle Maironis, a recognized lithuanian poet and spiritualist who is honored on the 20 Litas currency in Lithuania. 

Krista has dedicated her time to painting for wildlife causes to support endangered elephants, bees and wild cats and has supported various wildlife organizations.
