Yulia Brodskaya Makes PAPERgraphics!

By now, it’s hard to create completely original art that hasn’t been seen by just about everyone and their mom’s, but Yulia Brodskaya manages to. Brodskaya, a Russian-born artist who currently lives in London, does all sorts of art, from illustration to graphic design. But what really stands out are her highly stylized 3-dimensional paperscapes, the likes of which I’ve never seen before. They are simultaneously graphical and graceful, and the added depth due to their 3-dimensionality are difficult to replicate in a 2-dimensional setting. It’s clear to see that Brodskaya is an artist that likes to constantly experiment and push the limits, and she’s definitely one to keep an eye on.
