Aistė Marija Stankevičiūtė, based in Vilnius, Lithuania, intertwines her roles as a visual artist and writer to delve into the multifaceted portrayal of the 'villain.' Drawing inspiration from the antagonistic figures found in film, literature, fashion, and art history, Aistė Marija creates sculptures, texts and drawings with trickster identities

Her works have been shown at the Contemporary Art Centre (Vilnius, Lithuania), the Rupert Residency (Vilnius, Lithuania), the Podium project space (Oslo, Norway), and the International Exhibition of Contemporary and Modern Art (EXPO Chicago, Chicago, USA), among others.
