Radvilė Kisieliūtė graduated from A. Martinaitis Art School and trained in Vilnius Arts Academy Open School of Art, Design and Architecture in Lithuania. Later she obtained a BA Fashion Design at University of Bedfordshire and has worked in fashion industry for bespoke and high fashion companies. Alongside her MA in University of Arts London where she gained master’s degree in Costume Design for Performance, she also designed and made costumes for live performances and worked on freelance base projects.
Her strongest interests are in symbolism, paganism, folkloric heritages intertwined with psychological and philosophical underlayings. Her work focuses on textiles and textures manipulation, development, breaking down methods and recycling, which over years became the distinctive style of her creations and supportive expression of her concepts. Radvile enjoys exploring, analysing chosen themes in greater depth and discovering continuation and dialogue between personal interests, research, experimentation and design development throughout creation of meaningful work. Radvilė always tries to find connections by collating chosen theme context with parallel themes to come up with grounded statement and experimental interpretation.
Due to her extensive work experience and education in a lot of different creative fields Radvilė is open for various creative work without limiting her choices and creative thinking.
