Paper Arts : Yulia Brodkaya

It's been a pleasure (not to mention really exciting) for me to put together this post about one of my favorite 'paper artists'. Yulia Brodskaya is an amazing artist, designer and illustrator from Russia. She came to the UK in 2004, immersing herself in the learning of textile painting, origami and collage as well as traditional fine art. She has earned an international reputation for her innovative paper illustrations and continues to create beautifully detailed paper designs for clients all around the world. Her client list is extensive (and varied), from Starbucks to Hermès with everything from Target, Google and Nokia in between.

It's so innovative and unexpected! Love the Hermes logo in this style!

There are so many original ways to fold, crease, bend and place these paper shapes!

 This is really cute, not to mention clever!


This piece reminded me (in color and techniques) to George Braque collages. I put them side by side. On the left is Yulia's collage, on the right is Braque. Loving it!

  1. Hi Margot! I'm another passenger on the Yulia fan train! Recently, she did the illustrations for main features in Martha Stewart & Oprah magazines, I wrote a little thing about it here, w/ pics of course:
