His interest in art began back home in Latvia, when he had the opportunity to learn wood-carving. Eventually, he left Latvia to travel and work in Europe for 6 years. This is where he was first introduced to the psy trance culture. His experience within this subculture altered his perspective on life in a very big way. Naturally, it influenced his lifestyle and art heavily, which has taken on a more spiritual direction.
A turning point in his life and artwork was when he had the amazing opportunity to join the Boom Festival family. He then met a group of artists known as Quantum Tribe, with whom he worked with for two more festival seasons at massive events such as Tangra Festival (Bulgaria) 2012 & 2013 and Lost Theory 2013; at which they combined their skills to create full stage designs for the entire festival.
At the same time he was creating his own wood sculptures in the form of totem poles. This is where he first had the dream of
using his totem pole sculptures to connect the energies of all the psy culture festivals all over the globe. One day he plans
to realise this dream by travelling to every festival he can, leaving behind one of his totem poles, creating a connection between these events, and to symbolise his love and gratitude towards this culture. It is from this planned project
that he took his artist name, ‘World Bridger’.
After the last festival season he returned to England and relocated to Liverpool, where he joined a lovely psychedelic
family. He spent the winter months in his studio experimenting with new media. He discovered a new passion for airbrushing
art to create backdrops, and utilising fabrics to create three dimensional ceiling designs and stage décor installations.
This experience of creating festival décor was very inspiring and heart-opening, and it has become a major passion in his life.
He is excited to begin a new festival season using the new skills and techniques he has been working on during the long winter.
