Yulia Brodskaya:Paper Explodes With Life In This Artist's Hands


Using a centuries-old technique known as quilling, Russian artist Yulia Brodskaya manipulates strips of colorful paper by rolling, looping and curling them into decorative shapes. She then uses glue to meld all the filigreed pieces together into one cohesive visual.
Although she began her art career as a graphic designer and illustrator, Brodskaya moved away from Photoshop after discovering her passion for handcrafting these three-dimensional paper masterpieces.


"Paper always held a special fascination for me," she explains on her website. "I've tried many different methods and techniques [for] working with it until I found the way that has turned out to be 'the one' for me. Now I draw with paper instead of on it."
It wasn't long before Brodskaya's uniquely innovative work gained an international reputation. Today, the cheerful work has been commissioned by a number of high-profile clients, including Starbucks, Sephora, Target, the New York Times, Neiman Marcus and many more.
