Yuliya Martynova

Yuliya Martynova

Born: 1980

Hometown: Aktau Kazakhstan

Based in: London UK

 

Born and raised in Kazakhstan (1980) promising art school graduate age 15 Yuliya was set to study law following collapse of the Soviet Union.
She moved to London in 2005 and spent 10 years building her career in energy and wealth management.

In 2015 she lost interest in corporate world and became a full time artist.

A r t i s t S t a t e m e n t:
To sum up the subjects that follow through Yuliya's varied collections and unite those seemingly different styles at core, she emphasises on deeply personal dilemmas:

-Weight free existence & escapism
-Grace & elegance in a landscape
-Infantilism & ingenuity of human kind
-Loss of identity & change in life pace
-Time borrowing vs quality of time

M e d i a :

Watercolour in particular has been Yuliya's long standing dominant media though she ventures to mix water based materials with oil, graphite, and acrylic on wood, canvas and paper.
She is highly regarded for her recognisable and unique watercolour on canvas style.
Yuliya is a frequent participant of London art fairs, regular works with interior designers on luxury residential, cruise liners and hospitality projects and nurture plans to bring more work to the US in the upcoming years.
