Gediminas Šiaulys (Ged Sia) is an animation director, visual artist and a co-founder of a studio PetPunk (Vilnius, Lithuania). The artist’s primary areas of interest lie in animation, tactile crafts and various experiments within these fields. This leads to authentic work that is visually and aesthetically challenging, yet peculiarly subtle.
Gediminas’ works gained recognition by world’s leading art & design magazines and became “New Eastern European Design” synonym. In 2009 Canadian Boards magazine included PetPunk in top 6 of “New Wave of Designers”, while in 2010 UK’s leading design magazine Computer Arts featured PetPunk as “The New Wave of Animation”.
Gediminas Šiaulys together with Petpunk are the first Lithuanians to win the “Young Guns” prize by the Art Directors Club in New York and have been invited to numerous international festivals such as the European Design Conference (Stockholm), Visuelt (Oslo), PICTOPLASMA (Berlin), Onedotzero (London), Anima (Brussels), Arsenale (Florence), Holland Animation Film Festival (Utrecht), 5th Istanbul Animation Festival (Istanbul), Huesca Film Festival (Huesca), Off Motion Festival (Krakow), DesignFLUX 2007 (Paris).
