Paper is a powerful tool in creativity. Aside from being a place for effortless sketches, it can be folded and sculpted into three-dimensional works. Yulia Brodskaya is one artist who transforms the everyday material into wondrous and colorful creations. She does so with her amazing paper quilling art, which involves her coiling and shaping strips into a design. The practice dates back hundreds of years to the Renaissance but has had a recent resurgence thanks to artists like Brodskaya.
From typography-based art to portraiture, Brodskaya has tested her paper quilling skills and taken it to new heights. In 2016, she introduced a series of portraits of the elderly that employed a new approach. Rather than curling long paper ribbons, she tightly packed each colorful strip. Her new method allows her three-dimensional artworks to illusively tiptoe the line between sculpture and painting. Each fold serves as a single “brushstroke.”
Since we last checked in with Brodskaya (last year), she’s continued to produce artwork that employs a variety of techniques. She will often curl the paper (one of the telltale signs of quilling), but her most striking approach involves tightly packing the paper strips into thin, angular arrangements that mimic the look and feel of an Impressionist brushstroke. It’s a beautiful collision of the two worlds, and it continues to push the age-old field of paper quilling forward in new and exciting ways.

Yulias Fähigkeiten werden in der Kreativwirtschaft nicht unbemerkt. Sie hat Kunstwerke für mehrere führende Marken produziert, darunter die Neuen Wissenschaftler, Nokia, Milch Milch, Hermes, WIRED, um nur einige zu nennen.
Wir sind hier irgendwie weggeblasen und sehen, was dieser Künstler mit Papier machen kann. Russisch geboren, Großbritannien besiedelt Illustration Zauberer Yulia Brodskaya Portfolio sollte keinen Zweifel an der Macht des Papiers als Medium für Ausdruck. Ihr Fachwissen in der Quillierung (die Kunstform, die Papier verwendet, um dekorative Entwürfe zu kreieren) ist vermutlich nur von ihrem Sinn für Typografie besetzt, von denen sie sich gut in die Rechtschreibung von Botschaften in ihrer Arbeit einsetzt.
Hopefully the title (and image) speaks for itself: this is vaguely inspired by shaman culture and traditions; an attempt to demonstrate that moment of being immersed/submerged into the spirits world.
This is one of the least colorful artworks, but, technically, my focus was on carefully controlling the direction/flow of thousands of paper strips to make them tell a story with this kind of subtle movement.

This year, rather than focusing solely on the elderly, Brodskaya has extended her attention to a younger lineup of subjects. Alternating between decorative and documentary, the paper artist once again experiments with a visually stimulating blend of abstraction and realism. Each tightly packed portrait has its own story to tell, offering a glimpse of narrative, but opening it up to the viewer to fill in the blanks.

To see more of Brodskaya’s innovative work, you can now follow her on her newly minted Instagram account. And if you’re in the UK, the artist will be speaking at the Reasons to: conference in Brighton this September. It’s an annual event for international creatives and developers to take the stage to “inform, inspire, entertain, thrill and educate designers and coders.”
