playing with light

Hello, I am an Artist & Designer Ruta Kraujutyte.

(but you can call me Ruta Krau)

Since childhood I was surrounded by art. From watching my grandfather making beautiful woodwork and graphic design pieces, to going to art school which allowed experimentation with different visual art mediums. That led me to achieve a bachelor's degree of Architecture.

Art. In my paintings I strive to demonstrate a fusion of abstraction and symbolism. It is a perfect medium to express my spirituality, dreams and imagination. Symbols used have deep personal meaning.

Photo. I specialize in architectural photography at the same time adoring street photography with a focus on people. The urge to capture images caught me while wandering Portugal streets. My goal is to showcase the play of light and shadow, different shapes and textures as well as convey the significance of scale.


Design. I consider myself as a minimalist designer with an approach "Less is more" and questions "Why?". I believe in collected, simple and sometimes playful visual approach.

Let's get in touch (commissions, inquiries, collaborations, etc.)
