About

IMG_5712.jpg

Yuliia Orlova is a self-taught Ukrainian born artist based in Amsterdam. She creates vibrant whimsical compositions of interconnected objects and fairytale-like characters. Yuliia developed her personal style and has been perfecting it ever since. She paints in bright limited palettes of three to four colors using and mixing a wide range of materials, such as watercolours, acrylic paint, ink and charcoal. 

 

Drawing inspiration from folk and outsider art, Yuliia seeks for playfulness and authenticity in her works. She makes art intuitively and free of judgement utilising topics from everyday life and her own experiences. She is drawn to whimsical depictions of animals and fairy-tale like characters, as they offer a sense of playfulness and joy that helps to counterbalance the stress and anxiety of modern existence.
