Paper Artist Yulia Brodskaya Quilling Designs

by Sherry Riter in Art  

I have a thing for paper that goes way back to my early childhood which is why I often highlight artists that use paper in one way or another.

Sexy plum poetry is written on paper.

Elegant sculptures are made using paper.

Paper is also used to create colorful sculptures.

There is another type of paper art called quilling and Yulia Bordskaya, in my opinion, has mastered it.

According to her website, “Yulia Brodskaya was born in Russia (Moscow); prior to moving to the UK in 2004 she was interested in diverse creative practices ranging from Textile Painting, Origami and Collage to more traditional Fine Art practices. Following an MA in Graphic Communication (2006, University of Hertfordshire) she continued to experiment and explore ways of bringing together all the things she likes most: typography, paper, and highly detailed hand-made craft objects. She has swiftly earned an international reputation for her innovative paper illustrations and continues to create beautifully detailed paper designs for clients all around the world.”

I think the the following piece is absolutely fabulous. As Yulia states, “Being a three dimensional object, the artwork offers multiple views depending on the angle of perception and the intensity and direction of lighting. These things can drastically change the visual experiences and emotional message of the same artwork.”

The next time you think something can’t be done or that all the fresh ideas have been taken, remember to think outside the box like Yulia Brodskaya. It is amazing what can be accomplished or developed with ingenuity and determination. The only limitation that holds any of us back is our imagination.

Another fan of quilling here… I love that Yulia's talent is bringing the art so much recognition. I hadn't seen the first image before – good find!
