Valters Mednieks
Artist | Student | Varied
I'm artist from Latvia that likes to try out different mediums and styles.

Have worked as Flash animator in agency for couple of years, then tried few years web management in my professional career.

In that time when creative things were only my spare time activities, I have educated myself more in photo and traditional art at Latvian Art Academy evening preparation courses. From traditional mediums I like clay (plasticine) and oil painting.

Then changed my professional life back to animation department, but suddenly I managed to get in to Art Academy of Latvia in visual communications. I had part time job as animator in digital comics studio for a while as well. Right now I'm studying and freelancing at the same time.

One of my recent creative activities is MMMM - where we together with :iconillu-sab: are making some crazy electroclash music :music:
What's going on in my life and art?

The Summer

The Summer is approaching and it makes me feel good. I really want to feel warmth on my skin and to lay in the beach at my hometown like never before. Last two years was quite wild and filled with contrasts and adventures in my life. Even now I feel like I can be super happy, but quite depressed at the same time. In another words there's a little mess in my head. This is the reason I seek summer to charge my good vibes for the rest of the year.

Break from the Art Academy 

This is kind of bad thing. The series of bad luck in relationships, health, finances and overall loss of motivation made a huge gap where I should be now in my initial plans. I'm complaining yeah... Anyway. I took the official one year break from Academy, to solve my unfinished tasks in few subjects and to start next year completely clear. The main reason is that I want to attend to ERASMUS exchange program, but in order to that I can't be in blacklist where I'm pretty much now.

Relationships relationships relationships 

Up-s and down-s, moments and breaks, fading and exploding... I'm free! My recovery gets slower every next time though. But I will do it again. I'm hopeless optimistic and I fall in love pretty quickly :D

Music takes over

It started as a way to rest my eyes, to fill my gab that I'm pretty much distant from music, dancing and everything between. Then it continued as curiosity, as a joke, as a way to escape from reality. Now my surrounding people start to think that I'm quitting visual arts. I can say straight away - it's not true. Although now I feel that music start's to take place in my life and time. It's part of my creative expressions and slowly start's to be part of my income as well. I'm really excited and happy how it turned out in such a short period of time. Ok, enough about that! I'll probably write dedicated journal about it anyway :D

Genuine freelancer

I'm totally free of job and working hours now. I'm genuine freelancer now and I feel quite good about it. Well sometimes you feel well established and sometimes you scrapping the end of the barrel, but it's fine for me. Now I can work for any of our local advertising agency because I'm not tied to any of them. Each new project from direct clients is bigger and gives me more freedom of output. As a pure freelancer it's actually quite easy to dedicate time for music, rehearsals and gig's. Probably this is the reason why music related things evolved so fast.

So what's about visual arts now?

There will be more photos and more analog stuff as well. I got my hands into developing process last summer and now this is something I would love to do again. I cought that I'm doing more filming with my digital camera than taking photos recently... it means that some life will be brought in my youtube channel in near future ;)

Few more words

Probably the beginning of this journal entry looked kind of depressive, but it's part of my therapy. I feel more relieved now and this is the most important thing about it. It's not necessary to react somehow special about this. Probably there's nothing much changed in my life or the way I treat life.

Hey! But If you want to... don't be shy! You can write me something there in comments or in PM. I would love to chat with you a little about the life or random stuff ;P
