ABOUT YULIA MARTINOVA

Born in Kazakhstan (Aktau) in 1980, Yuliya attended the city’s art school between the ages of 10 – 15 and was noted as one of their most promising graduates. Her love of art had to take a back seat after she won a prestigious law scholarship and felt pressure to enter the emerging post-soviet era Kazakhstan oil and gas economy. Yuliya worked in the local Kazakh oil & gas industry before accepting a post in Aberdeen. After 2 years there, she relocated in 2007 to London where she has made her long term home.

Her creative ambition was restricted within the corporate world and in April 2015 she took the opportunity to reinvent herself becoming a full time artist.  Since then Yuliya has been continuously gaining attention of the international curators, art advisors and private art collectors all around the world.

Independent, driven, yet fragile, her artistic ideology is a form of self-reflection. It lies with uncertain trajectory of a paper plane – a delicate vessel connecting space and time. The philosophical message shrouded in Yuliya’s elegant creations varies from painting to painting providing for less obvious emotional narrative.

ABOUT THE MIGRATION COLLECTION:

The collection of large dreamscapes  centring around the idea of embracing uncertain trajectories. The paper plane plays the role of an identity-free person objectifying our likeness.  Each canvas tells a story of courage, devotion, freedom in choosing direction that make us different.  The series underline the importance of personal choices and awareness of opportunities that may carry us to achieve the new heights; finding  strength in fragility to overcome our fears of failures.
