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.
Her list of clients is impressive, including Neiman Marcus, Hermes, Starbucks, The New York Times, HOW and Oprah – just a few picked from a very long resume. And it’s not surprising at all. Her style is exciting, unique, so well executed and joyfully accessible. But in addition, Yulia knows how to combine her paper work, historically called “quilling,” in a dramatic, dynamic way with other elements on the page whether that includes fonts or photography. Her paper sculpture smoothly transitions between areas of intense patterning and colors to a faded simplicity that plays so well with others.
