Yulia Brodskaya – Papergraphic

Yulia Brodskaya has rejuvinated the old craft of quilling and added her own style and flair. I’m not aware of anywhere to buy her work yet unless you are lucky enough to pick up one of the multiple publications who have commissioned her work.

However you can get a gorgeous theme for Google Chrome or a T-shirt with her work on.

The beauty of these images comes not only from the fantastic work she creates, but the very skilled way in which they are photographed with diffused light. I’d love to learn more about her creative process and the logistics of the creation and photography. There has been a real resurgence of papercraft graphic art recently including some amazing work from Su Blackwell.

Stella Im Hultberg

Stella Im Hultberg is a New York based, Korean born artist who creates amazing feminine artworks of raven haired skeletal women. Created using mixed media, particullarly oil and ink, often on tea stained paper. Emotive and striking, the images explore the fluidity of the media used and with subtle use of colour create a flowing and evocative and feminine images. In particular I love how she paints hair, exploring and accentuating the organic forms that the media offers, to create striking contrast and movement within her images.

You can buy Stella’s work from her website and she quite often has shows on in the US. If you like her art you might also want to look at the work of Amy Sol and Audrey Kawasaki with whom she has frequently collaborated and held several shows. Please be aware that some of her work may be considered NSFW.
