Stephen Butkus (1983) is a Norwegian born photographer and artist who now resides in Bali. With a mixed heritage from Lithuania and America, he has travelled and lived between multiple countries working on his art. He started out documenting subcultures and nightlife around the world at the age of 17. The last 6 years he has focused on his art work and portraiture photography and has come to be one of Scandinavia’s most progressive and exciting photographers within his field.
Having exhibited in Norway, Sweden, New York, Los Angeles and Paris, “K-Hole” at Crate Gallery marks Stephen’s first exhibition in Indonesia. This exhibition is a selection of Stephen’s work that depicts his expression of memories and thoughts circling around those nights when we experienced the world for the first time in other dimensions. Gripping out to touch something only to realize that what you see, and feel does not communicate in your language. That your awareness of the world around you, and your control over your own body, become so profoundly
impaired that you’re temporarily unable to interact with others – or the world around you.
