Yulia Brodskaya’s Upbeat Paper Cut Work
by Nastia Voynovskaya
Russian artist Yulia Brodskaya creates playful illustrations, installations and paper cut works using a unique method she developed after leaving her graphic design job in 2006. The artist rolls tiny strips of colorful paper into spirals that she aggregates into larger shapes, creating textural works that lie somewhere on the horizon between two and three dimensions.
Her whimsical, springy work invites a sense of optimism.
While paper cut art is typically a small-scale medium, Brodskaya often creates mural-sized artworks and installations for commercial clients, using paper to transform rigid spaces into fantastical realms.
“As it appears in … full read/full credit”
Yulia Brodskaya, born in 1983, is a highly regarded paper artist and illustrator.
She uses two simple materials – paper and glue, and a simple technique that involves the placement of carefully cut and bent strips of paper -to make lush, vibrant, three-dimensional paper artworks.
Yulia Brodskaya started working as a graphic designer and illustrator in 2006, however quickly abandoned the computer programs in favor of paper art:
“Paper always held a special fascination for me. I’ve tried many different methods and techniques of working with it, until I found the way that has turned out to be ‘the one’ for me: now I draw with paper instead of on it”.
I do not own these images.
No intention of taking credit.
If anyone knows the owner of any, please advise and it will be corrected immediately.
Soon after discovering her passion and unique style, Brodskaya has swiftly earned an international reputation for her innovative paper illustrations and was named the ‘breakthrough star‘ of the 2009 by Creative review magazine. Her modern take on the paper craft practice has helped her build an impressive list of clients in just a few short years, from Hermés to Starbucks to Godiva, Target, Sephora, The New York Times Magazine and many others (more than 100 projects over the 5 years).
She is frequently invited to speak at design conferences and design schools around the world: the talks include renowned Friends of St Bride Library Conference, Guardian’s The art of Illustration masterclass.
The original artworks are owned by Oprah Winfrey, Ferrero, Hermes, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Country Music Association and numerous private collectors.
