Today I found an amazing illustration of a Russian born artist Yulia Brodskaya.
I was totally impressed by the lively aura of the pictures that produces an impression of the surreal world of lines and circles.
Her “Babushka” is a picture of the elderly woman who is holding the guitar. This work is not painted in realistic manner, however the face has thoughtful, tired and slightly sad eyes that look amazingly real. One can see the whole life behind the stripes and extensively and boldly mixed colors.
Yulia states in her blog: “I believe that one of the main reasons I enjoy the paper craft, is due to my love of the material: paper. Although I’ve always had a special fascination for paper, it has taken me a while to find my own way of working with it; and then it took a little longer to find out that the technique I have been using so intensively is called quilling – it involves the use of strips of paper that can be rolled, shaped, and glued to the background”
Yulia Brodskaya was born in Moscow. She started her artistic path with many creative practices , such as Textile Painting, Origami and Collage, etc. Later after the graduation she was extensively experimenting typography, paper, and highly detailed hand-made craft objects.
