About

Yulia Pustoshkina is a third generation artist born in Russia, immigrated to Australia in 2001. Studying at the Art School of Petrozavodsk, Yulia’s painting technique is influenced by famous traditional Russian art schools including Palekh and Loubok. Yulia’s early miniature paintings traditionally applied on wood plaques depicted Russian folkloric daily scenes of harvesting, fishing, domestic activities. Once immigrated to Australia she discovered for herself new medium as oils and mastered her painting technique on large canvases. Each painting tells a story. Yulia draws inspiration from her past, her native traditions and customs, Russian folklore, fairy-tales and the world around her. There always is a thoughtful purpose in everything that her characters do. Now living in Australia Yulia still manages to carry on depicting her characters and minor details of her paintings with a distinctive flair of her Russian heritage. "Some paintings are truly dear to my heart and they will always stay with me but I can share the story they may hide. I like to listen to what impressions viewers experience looking at my artworks. It is always an emotion. And that is exactly what I want to stir in people’s minds and then observe it. " Yulia Pustoshkina
