Paper quilling art by Yulia Brodskaya
The talent of Russian born paper artist Yulia Brodskaya (1983), who now lives in London, is certainly much more in demand abroad than at home. Yulia engaged in several kinds of handmade art, but most of her time she devotes to creating unique three-dimensional paper illustrations. “Paper always held a special fascination for me. I’ve tried many deferent methods and techniques of working with it, until I found the way that has turned out to be ‘the one’ for me: now I draw with paper instead of on it”, Yulia Brodskaya states. Yulia worked with many large companies, such as: Starbucks, Nokia, Godiva, Target, Sephora, New York Times magazine, and many others (more than 100 projects over the 5 years). Up until 2004 Yulia Brodskaya worked in Moscow, engaged in office design. After she had graduated from the University with the diploma in Graphics and Communication, she left the country.
Yulia Brodskaya often speaks at conferences of designers around the world: the talks include renowned Friends of St Bride Library Conference, Guardian’s The art of Illustration masterclass. Her original paper illustrations are owned by Oprah Winfrey, Ferrero, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Country Music Association and numerous private collectors.
