Being successful as an artist takes a lot of persistence and passion for the art that one undertakes. Several artists have dedicated and sacrificed their lives for art which is something not every profession in the world demands. The uniqueness and mastery in the art come with years of dedicated practice and effort and that is the reason why most of the world’s renowned artists are well-respected. Speaking of artists of such quality, meet Evaldas Gulbinas.
Evaldas Gulbinas is a tattoo artist known for his unique and intricate tattoo designs. Born and raised in Lithuania, Evaldas discovered his passion for tattooing at a young age and has been honing his skills for over a decade.
Evaldas’ work is heavily inspired by traditional tattoo styles, including Japanese and Polynesian tattooing, as well as more modern tattooing techniques. He is known for his attention to detail and his ability to bring his clients’ visions to life.
One of the things that set Evaldas apart from other tattoo artists is his dedication to his craft. He is constantly learning and improving his skills, and he takes the time to carefully plan out each tattoo to ensure that it is perfect for the individual client. Evaldas recalls how he used to work with tattoo parlors during summer breaks in university when others used to have fun or do something apart from work. He mentions that he loved every moment of it and was never once dejected about doing those apprenticeships. He says that those apprenticeships are one of the major reasons why he was able to discover more forms of his art and how he was able to evolve into a much better artist.
Proficiency In The Arts:
In addition to his tattooing skills, Evaldas is also an accomplished painter, illustrator, art installation, contemporary arts, fashion, sculpting, and much more. He holds a diploma in art and design from West Thames College, London, a bachelor’s in Fine Arts, Mixed Media from the University of Westminster, London, and a Master’s degree in fine arts from the University of Arts in London.
With such proficiency in the Fine Arts and Contemporary Media, Evaldas wanted to make sure that he makes the best use of it. He started doing a lot of tattoo apprenticeships that helped him familiarize himself with more techniques of the art of tattooing.
He often incorporates elements of his artwork into his tattoo designs, creating truly unique pieces that are as many works of art as they are tattoos. Evaldas has a large and loyal following of clients who appreciate his talent and dedication to his craft. Many of his clients return to him for multiple tattoos, and he has built a reputation as one of the top tattoo artists in the region. One of the major reasons why he can do what he does is his ability to imbibe his language into people’s skin. Evaldas is a person who does not work on a template but rather works on making a unique design with his ideas and at the same time, keeping the client’s aspirations in mind.
In addition to his tattooing work, Evaldas is also heavily involved in the tattoo community. He is a member of several tattoo organizations and is active in promoting the art of tattooing and supporting fellow artists.
When asked about what he has to say to someone who is just starting their career, he mentions three important things.
“Make sure that you always have it in your head that sheer hard work and a never give up attitude is the only way on how you can make it big in life.”
“Understanding what you like and how you want to do it is very important before anything, if you are not sure about what you want, then you will not be committed to do the things that you wanted to do”.
“If you are good at a skill as well as passionate about it, then practice it so hard that you become a master in it. That is the only way through which you will be able to do what you do successfully”.
Despite his success, Evaldas’s calm and composed demeanor and the ways with which he dedicates himself to the art he pursues are rare to be seen. He is always looking for ways to improve and to push the boundaries of what is possible with tattooing and with bigger aspirations like a doctorate’s degree in fine arts and helping more artists surface their art, Evaldas is on his way to becoming an artist whom generations will look up to.
Evaldas Gulbinas is a talented and dedicated tattoo artist whose work is admired by both clients and fellow artists from the world of art.
