Born in Kazakhstan (Aktau) in 1980, Yuliya spent the best years of her childhood studying art. She was noted amongst most promising graduates of the city art school.


However, pursuing artistic direction in the broken post soviet state was seen as an unpractical career prospect. Back then law seemed as the most desirable degree amongst families. So the bright teen worked hard towards a prestigious law scholarship and had to put her artistic aspirations on hold.

artist statement

Visualising chaotic trajectories through paper plane formations, Yuliya brings emphasis to positive qualities of adaptive human behaviour and prevailing strength over perceived weakness. 


She empowers her planes with an identity of a faceless portrait. Their blank personalities are filled with hope and ability to overcome the challenges when confronted with unfamiliar highs.
