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.

She is a multimedia artist who loves to experiment. Her favorite media is acrylic, but she also loves watercolor and oil pastels. Her art reflects her interest in human psychology, the way people interact, feel and affect each other. Yulia bases her paintings on the emotion she’s feeling. Rather than attempting to create a realistic interpretation of the subject matter she focuses on revealing the expressive elements of colors, light and texture.
