Yulia Shautsukova

b. 1 9 7 7 ( R u s s i a n )

Yulia Shautsukova is a Russian artist who has lived and worked in Hong Kong for the last 10 years. Yulia’s paintings transfer the best of Russian oil painting techniques into modern art. Her work explores the relationship between colours and emotions inspired by the organic forms found in nature. The vibrant colours in her work stimulate the emotions of each viewer to drive their own interpretation creating a unique inner world. 

Born in Moscow in 1977, Yulia Shautsukova has developed a deep interest in painting since childhood. She studied art at the Crimean University of Art and further studied at the Russian Academy of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in Moscow. Yulia travels widely around the world to search for new colours and inspirations. Her paintings are collected by art lovers from many different countries.

Yulia skilfully composed paintings based on thousands of daily photographs she took combined with techniques from her traditional art education.  It is never the artist’s intention to find grandiose subjects that guarantee a successful art piece, but more so translating the day-to-day into her paintings. Whether or not for the purpose of creating art, Yulia would be taking photos of her everyday Hong Kong life – scenes consisting a beautiful shadow on the ground, special natural lighting as reflected by the combination of sunlight and skyscrapers, tiny details on the corner of a fish boat that caught her eye, and the list goes on. These are what she called the ‘special moments’ in life, impromptu moments that come unexpectedly full of joy.

 

Yulia would take photos of the same seemingly mundane scene time after time until she catches the ‘right light’.  Each painting is a piece of the artist herself and consists of all her energy, illustrating the different moods and feelings she experiences in and about the city at different periods of life. To Yulia, every corner, street, side, small shop and basically everything in and of Hong Kong is beautiful. She would like to communicate that energy and sensational touch to her viewers, to stimulate some personal fond memories or to simply ‘feel good’ about life.  While people in the city are always so immersed in the hectic rush through the quotidian traffic, she prompts us to not forget how incredible Home Kong can be.
