About me.

 

I am Tomas Olšauskas, born in the family of artists Vera and Jonas.

I finished Panevėžys Art School in 1985,  later studied and graduated from the Stepas Žukas Fine Art Technical College in Kaunas (completed Artistic Glasswork Program). After studies I started my own bussiness and opened the pub "Trabis".

 

I was always intrested in non-traditional arts. One  of them is tattoos.

Tattooing  is  the eternal art of unlimited possibilities. It became part of my life in 1997 and after a year my first tattoo shop "Trabis tattoo" was opened. Later I worked with tattoo artist Giedrius (present "Angistattoo"), in tattoo shops „Totemas“ (Šiauliai, Lithuania),  „Ugnies kaukė“ (Vilnius, Lithuania) and „American body art“ (Paris, France). In 2000 "Tomas tattoo" studio was opened, since then I have been working in my own tattoo shop in Panevežys and participate in various conventions and tattoo events in Lithuania and foreign countries.

Bodypainting is the art that lasts shorter than it is created. My first bodypainting show was made in 2000 during the grand opening of "Tomas tatoo" studio. Later shows were made in various cultural events, presentations and night club programs in Lithuania and in the  World Body Painting Festival (Seeboden, Austria) 2006 and 2007. 

 

Music is very important in my life. I organized many rock concerts in "Trabis" pub, later began to play djembes myself. Percussion instruments have been accompanying my bodypainting shows since 2001 when together with actor Andrius we founded the music band „Dauš‘ms“. The same year it was renamed „Macrabangų Dauš‘ms“ as we had joined another band  „Macrabangai“ from Vilnius. We combine percussion and bodypaintig to create live music for a living canvas.
