Yulia Pustoshkina Growing up in a very creative and ever-busy family has significantly affected Yulia Pustoshkina’s lifestyle. As a teenager while she was learning various creative skills from different members of her family, her father was her greatest inspiration in arts and later the art teacher for five years at the local Art School in Petrozavodsk, Russia. Under his guidance Yulia practiced painting, drawing, composition, sculpture and the history of arts. Her Russian background has naturally influenced her artistic style. A significant part of her painting experience was working with miniature paintings common in the traditional Russian folklore.
She should say that the extensive practice of detailed painting resulted in her
current painting technique. While working on either small or large canvas Yulia likes to bring on the tiniest details that the viewers always manage to pick and wonder. She imagines anthropomorphic characters whether animals or birds, fish or plants and flowers.
Everything they do or busy with has a purpose to it; every small detail has a
meaning. Most often they are on the go somewhere and that probably explains
her own love for travel. Yulia’s Russian background never escapes to show itself
and she creates a fusion of Australian flora and fauna since Australia has
become her second home. She finds that an idea for a painting carries most
significant importance. She noticed her inspirations come from everywhere; they turn the key to her imagination and a picture story begins to unfold.
