The Blue Bay collection is inspired by my apre-reggatta sailing experience in Devon. Growing up on the shores of the Caspian Sea and many adventures in the tropical seas across Caribbean, Brazil and Indian Ocean I ve been lucky to travel through.
Having first hand regatta experience, I can honestly say - Champagne-on-the-deck is the kind of sailing I find most enjoyable and the kind of feel I transcend into my marine paintings. Care and stress free. Sun and salt in your hair. Reflections on water. Endless horizon views.
It's also my take on the areal photography craze and attempt to create my very own get away reality where your eyes sink into the peaceful bliss.
The series explore the idea of escape from urban stress and into the lavish tropical horizon

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.
