Līga Spunde (b. 1990) is a visual artist based in Riga, Latvia. She presents her works as multimedia installations, intertwining personal stories with deliberate fiction. The interpretations and use of recognisable characters serve as an extension of her personal experiences, tapping into universal truths. The work’s content determines the conception’s physical form leading the artist to use various media and materials in her installations.
She completed her postgraduate studies in the Department of Visual Communication at the Art Academy of Latvia in 2016, her graduation project, The Hike, was named one of the three best projects by graduates of European art academies.
