Arturas Bumšteinas (born 1982 in Vilnius) is a Lithuanian artist who works at the intersection of sound, music and art. His practices can be divided into three categories: music, sound installations and theater pieces (but there is also, of course, radio art). In the late 90's Arturas started using the internet to collect sounds from people around the world and make collages from these voluntary submissions (another take on sampling?). He is the initiator of various musical projects and since 2000 he has collaborated with different artists such as Anton Lukoszevieze, Vladimir Tarasov, Krystian Lupa, Žilvinas Kempinas, Gintautas Trimakas, Lina Lapelytė, Vaiva Grainytė, Laura Garbštienė, Piotr Kurek, Ivan Cheng... Arturas' projects have been presented in various venues in Europe and his "solo" exhibitions have taken place at the Vilnius Contemporary Art Center, Vartai Gallery, AV17, Antje Wachs Berlin Gallery and various residencies in Europe.
