Ingrīda Pičukāne (1978) is a feminist artist who focuses her art on the analysis of the female perspective. She is interested in women’s everyday life and stories ‒ personal histories that are so often omitted. Pičukāne holds two MA degrees, one from the Department of Animation at the Estonian Academy of Arts and the second from the Department of Visual Communication at the Latvian Academy of Arts. Since 2007, her comic strips have been regularly published in the š! comic anthologies and shown at comic exhibitions abroad. The artist designed the Beautiful Mothers book by Jana Kukaine and illustrated a number of children’s books published by the “liels un mazs” publishing house. Pičukāne is the editor and artist of the Samanta zine (first issue published in 2017).
