​   Klavs Loris’ artistic style can be observed in his large-scale works, where the painter continuously experiments with techniques, combining classical oil painting with more modern mediums and materials. During these experimentations, Klavs Loris has developed his own author-technique, which combines photography, digital print and classical painting.

Klavs Loris has graduated from the Art Academy of Latvia (2014). Since 2007, he has been participating in group exhibitions, and organized 7 solo shows. In 2015, he has received an international recognition – Grand Prix at the JCE. Jeune creation Europeenne. Biennale d'art contemporain in Paris, which gave the painter an opportunity to stay at a residency in Paris and organize a solo show in Brussels, at the gallery Hangar H18.
