We are EIU
and Inga Urbonas
) a young family business making all kind of art from paintings on canvas all the way to the personalised clothing. It's been almost one year now and we have made some awesome art, brought new colours into other people's lives and grew as artists. THE BRAND
In creating the art we use NO ONE ELSE HAS IT
philosophy. It means that we have never done and never will do two the same pieces. There is no two exact same personalities or individuals, so why should there be a work of art? We want everyone to feel safe while expressing themselves, so whatever we create for YOU
and with YOU
can not be repeated for anyone else. It is empowering to know, that for the world and for us, you are the only one like that.
Same thing goes about our art produced for sale. One painting, one illustration, one thought, one feeling. If you can echo the special moment it is not that special after all, is it now?
We are very serious about the quality of work that we produce. For painting on clothes we only use the highest quality French fabric paint specially made to last. It does not scrub off, fade, cause any allergies and you can wash your clothes in washing machine with confidence that it will last.
For our paintings - we only use hand made canvas from a private master that we have been working with for a long time.
For our illustrations done on paper and mounted on wood - we use high quality 300g German made watercolour paper that we cover with varnish for lasting.The fist step
It all started around 20 years ago, seeing the first graffiti struck like a lightning and all of the sudden I caught myself mimicking the art and techniques. I basically did that throughout my school and university years (don't know how, but I managed to graduate).
Getting across the old masters like Michelangelo, Raphael, Bernini and modern genius like Banksy, Gabriel Moreno, seeing some beautiful tattoo designs and mashing it all together made me to develop my own style. The process of learning is never ending. I feel blessed that the love of my life Inga gave me an idea of putting my art on clothes and spreading it this way to the world. You can see what we have achieved so far and we feel that it's just a start.
All this we have learned through out the years of practise and experimenting with materials and techniques. There is a lot to learn along the way, but we have a ton to offer.
Now it is time for us to step up our game and get to the next level. By next level we mean - to make our own clothing line with our hand made art on it, instead of colorising the stuff our clients would send us.This is where YOU step in
We are raising money to make our own jacket or/and t-shirt line (depending on success of this campaign) unisex or female and male version. This way, after we decorate them with our creation of art we can distribute them in local boutique's and sell them online like our own.
Everything that you see in here is made by ourselves. Making the art, documenting it, managing the business, creating the webpage, responding to every client, making the media (like a video you saw for this campaign), and we both have full time jobs, but the clothing line is something that is out of our reach to do ourselves. Wall murals
for our clients is another thing we would love to do, but even getting started requires a big investment, because it takes lots of time, and to show what we can offer - we need a portfolio first - witch will take up a lot of time and zero income at the start. But we know we HAVE HEAVEN
to offer.Why do we do that?!
Everyone has a dream. Not everyone has a courage to act on it. We are huge believers that whatever you make form the bottom of your heart - reaches other people and speaks with them, the way nothing else can. That's the beauty of art.
Art on clothes for us in not just something to decorate materials, it's a way to express yourself, it'a way to represent what you believe, who you are and what you would like other people to know about you. Not everyone can draw and paint, so this is where we come in - after discussing every inch of work with the person - we create something, that is close to their heart and no one else will have it.
Doing what we like, living the dream, expressing ourselves in different ways is one of the biggest dreams of every artist. Hard work and true intentions usually pays off so we're ready to put everything we have just to achieve our dream. Giving back
What goes around comes around - you might say it'a cliche, we say it's a way of living.
Taking care of less fortunate around us is not an unusual thing in our life. Donating to dog shelters, kids, families in need, social groups in our community is just something that we do pretty regularly.
Feeling blessed to do what we love comes with responsibilities as well, so our promise is - whatever amount we will receive here 50% of it will be donated to those who need it the most. Sharing is caring, so by spreading the beauty of art we will have a chance to help other as well. We will document the whole process and you will be able to see it on our channel and accounts throughout social media accounts.
