The Migration collection is intended to capture the subject of departure highlighting the positive aspect of separation, leaving, breaking ties, closing the old chapter and starting anew.
The paper airplane objects encompassing a dynamic force and pictured as a faceless portrait of a traveler, explorer and a pioneer.
Simple light emotion of this flying element takes you to those carefree childhood memories, full of play time and moment when one explores physical nature.
These are intrinsic to what the artist intends to carry as a momentum, sourcing her creative streams from such ethereal structures.
Imposing or sometimes enveloping, the paper plane as a symbol against often opulent cloud background is meant to strengthen the message emphasising the scale of ever-changing terrain around us.
The clouds are big, strong, dominating. But full of detail and complexity.
In contrast, the paper planes are small, fragile yet perfectly built to take on a flight of undefined trajectory.
These little vessels are not meant to be this high up, naturally. However, just like us, they find themselves redefining the limits. Empowered within.

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.
