Karina Kalvaitis


Karina Kalvaitis depicts a parallel world full of personable, loveable, odd and awkward creatures that are familiar yet strange.

In graphite drawings and in mixed media sculptures these silently expressive oddballs act as metaphors for our own states of mind – expressing stoicism, uncertainty, hope, and wonder. She is interested in creating art that gets to the heart of human emotions and experiences – while also embracing a sense of the mysterious and unknowable.

Always interested in physically crafting work with a variety of materials, Karina majored in sculpture at the Alberta University of the Arts, and later studied theatre prop building at the Banff Centre in Alberta.

She lives in Victoria on traditional lək̓ʷəŋən (Lekwungen) Territory and in addition to being an artist she works as a props builder and scenic artists for theatre and opera productions.
