Riga (Letonia), 1965
Edite Grinberga was a student at Janis Rozentals Riga Art School from 1975 until 1982 and studied painting and textile design at the State Academy of Art in Riga as of 1983. Following her studies, she initially worked freelance as an independent artist in Riga. In her depictions of interiors and still life motifs, Edite Grinberga conjures up quiet moments recounting various trips and the past with the aid of representational hyperrealism and minimalistic reduction. Grinberga integrates depictions of people who relate stories of past times and the beauty of the moment into her works. The works of the artist have already been on display at various solo and group exhibitions. In 2008 several of her pictures were shown at an exhibition at the Waldemarturm tower in Dannenberg-Elbe. In 2013 her works were on display at the art societies Kunstkreis Hameln, Kunstverein Schöningen and Kunstverein zu Hohenaschau, among others. Her works can be found in numerous private and public collections, for example at the State Art Fund of Latvia.
