Biography

Yulia Latysheva was born in Potsdam, Germany in 1975, and has lived across the Russia and the United States. She currently resides in Samara, Russia.

She chose a Samara State Pedagogical University to achieve her degree in Speech Therapy and Child Psychology. Yet art has always been in her mind. So, when in 2000 she moved to the United States she began taking art and design classes in the NOVA and in the Lassie Corbett’s watercolor studio “Place to paint”.

Working in graphic and web design during the following 15 years she got back to the painting in 2018. She graduated from the Quadro School of Contemporary Art in her home city of Samara in 2020.

Yulia is a member of an International Federation of Artists and an Artist’s Union of Russia.

Artist statement

I am a multidisciplinary artist, who loves to experiment. My creative work includes acrylic painting, drawing, printmaking, collages and digital art. Sometimes I find that my work with one media can influence my work in another. My work is a constant search for the best way to interpret the ideas and feelings I have. I do not limit myself to one medium, style, or concept. My knowledge and experience is changing. New ideas and new inspiration come along with them. If a viewer stops for a moment to view and reflect on my piece, then I have succeeded in my work.
