PetPunk is a creative collaboration

between an artistic duo of Gediminas Šiaulys & Andrius Kirvela and producer Miglė Pelakauskė.
The artists’ primary areas of interest lie in animation and tactile crafts. Their creative goal is to produce authentic work that is visually and aesthetically challenging, yet peculiarly subtle. PetPunk tend to explore, experiment and play with conventional subjects.
