B. Russia, 1992
B. Russia 1992
Yulia Iosilzon’s paintings are laden with vibrant washes of colour incorporated over transparent silks and cloths. Grounding her works within narrative and anecdote, the artist cites children’s illustration and theatre as sources of inspiration, encouraging her lyrical works to be understood as scenes within a comic strip. Iosilzon often repeats symbols and motifs throughout her paintings, sculptures, and installations, building up an iconographic arsenal which she uses to comment on personal, social and political issues.
Iosilzon was born in Moscow, Russia in 1992. She completed a Foundation in Art and Design at Camberwell College of Art, before gaining a Fine Art BA from the Slade School of Fine Art, and later a Fine Art MA from the Royal College of Art. Iosilzon has exhibited internationally, including solo shows in New York and in Moscow. She received the prestigious Bloomberg New Contemporaries award in 2019, and the Audrey Wykeham Prize in 2016.
