1. ABOUT

    Marta Veinberga is a visual artist living and working in Riga, Latvia. In her paintings and three-dimensional works she likes to explore readymade materials, one of them – the supermarket prize stickers – being her recent favorite. However, the use of found materials is not just a game for it's own sake: the most important part is the generation of a conceptual tie between the theme, material, visual expression and sometimes – the creative process itself. Veinberga's work shows an interest in human being as social and psychological curiosity in a certain historical context. These themes are uncovered by motives of architecture and design without the use of human figure.

  2. Variety of prize stickers:

    These are the prize stickers. Originally it is an advertising material, something one receives in supermarkets, fuel stations and convenient stores usually for every 5 euros spent. A collection of them attached to a card gives an opportunity to buy certain products with discounts. Though many people think that they already have too much stuff and just throw them out. Others collect them with no clear purpuse. One lucky day Marta Veinberga realized that the stickers can be upcycled in paintings. It has turned out that there are many, who find this particular use of them most reasonable and donate their stickers for art.
