Bio/Description

Vaida Kidykaite is an architectural designer and artist, whose work is inspired by the beauty and complexity of nature. With a background in architecture, she has honed her skills in creating high-end, boutique homes/interiors and now focuses on building envelopes, massing, and designs. Her oil paintings are a reflection of her deep appreciation for gradients of light and modernist architecture. 

In addition to painting, Vaida is passionate about creating interactive installations that integrate nature, light, and architectural forms, and textures. She is drawn to designing pathways that encourage people to get lost in space, meditate, and feel inspired. 

In her leisure time, Vaida loves cycling and her fascination with astronomy fuels her exploration of the cosmos. From observing celestial phenomena to delving into the intricacies of observatory design, she immerses herself in understanding the universe's vast complexities.

Vaida's body of work fuses architecture, technology, and art. Her designs not only serve practical functions but also evoke a profound aesthetic resonance with a diverse audience. Through her innovative perspective and unwavering dedication, Vaida has solidified her reputation as a visionary artist and designer, enriching the built environment with her distinctive creativity.
