Yulia Brodskaya(Russia:Юлия Бродская,tr.Yuliya Brodskaya; born in 1983,Moscow) is an artist and illustrator known for her handmade elegant and detailed paper illustrations.
In 2004 Brodskaya moved from Moscow to UK where she continued her education in art, at theUniversity Of Hertfordshire, graduating with a Master of Art in Graphics Communication degree in 2006. Brodskaya started working as a freelance graphic designer, but she very quickly switched to the illustration field and became known for her innovative method of working with edge-glued strips of paper. However,the graphic design background has an influence on her art work as most of the initial pieces have a strong typographic focus:
“Typography is my second love, after paper and I’m really happy that I’ve found a way of combining the two. Having said that, I don’t want to exclude non-typobased designs, I’d like to work on different projects.”
