I’ve been wanting to try some paper art myself recently, since its one of my favorite mediums. Over the years one of my favorite paper artists has been Yulia Brodskaya, you can see some of my favorite works from Yulia above. I love the intricate and brightly colored scenes she illustrates and projects she’s done for companies like Google and O Magazine. Visit her site at www.artyulia.com.
About Yulia – From her site:
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.
