Meet the Artist Behind the Indre Bankauskaite Wall Art Collection!
This winter we had the pleasure of adding the colorful work of Indrė Bankauskaitė to our featured artists collection. This Lithuanian illustrator who also goes by Freeminds draws everything from animals to anime characters to food. She says she has a passion for digital art, animals and loves her tea. Her work can be described as whimsical, surreal and sometimes edgy illustration. Now available on My Wonderful Walls as high-quality fabric decals, you can check out her designs like Penguin Chef, a cute and quirky sushi penguin art decal. Or try the surreal Dream Guide, an enchanting deer wall decal with hues of blue, grey and yellow.
Indrė’s art has been very popular in wall decal form, so we wanted to get to know the artist a little better. Please enjoy this Q&A with Indrė Bankauskaitė and be sure to check out her entire wall art collection.
