I am a professional cartoonist and illustrator from Latvia. I received my Master’s degree in graphic fine art from the Art Academy of Latvia.
I work as a freelance artist and also work for the publishing house Latvijas Mediji. I have successfully collaborated for almost 20 years with many magazines, marketing companies and individual clients. My cartoons have appeared in such publications as Washington Post, USA Today, China Daily, Politico, Courrier International, Greenpeace and so on… I have published 3 cartoon books - Gatis Sluka Karikaturas (2006), Gatis Sluka Karikaturas 2 (2015), and Gatis Sluka Karikatura LV (2018). Since 2001, I have participated in many cartoon and print art exhibitions/conferences around the world. Almost every year since 2009, my cartoons have been exhibited at the World Press Cartoon Exhibition in Portugal.
