The Siberia-born artist talks about her colour experiments
- Text by Kemal Tarba
Ulia Goldman is a 22-year-old graduate of the Moscow-based British High School of Art and Design, she moved from Siberia to Moscow eight-years-ago. After graduating from BHSAD she continued her education at the University of Hertfordshire in London. Today Ulia designs covers, t-shirt prints and creates stunning bright and colourful work that shines a light on the idiosyncrasies of Ulia’s creative perception paradigm.
Satellite Voices: How would you describe your work?
Ulia Goldman: I don’t really correlate my work to a particular style. I’m into drawing by various materials and experimenting with colours. Folks say that my works are prevailed by minimalism and abstraction. Maybe that’s the way it is. I prefer to draw and people can see in my works whatever they wish to.
SV: What do you enjoy most about what you do?
Ulia Goldman: The coolest thing about what I do is that I can do it anywhere and anytime. I take my sketchbook and pencilbox wherever I go. If I go somewhere far away, I always have my paint and canvas with me. I take inspiration from a myriad of stuff, mostly nature and music, movies, animals and people, and rooms with white walls.
SV: What's the best advice you've ever been given?
Ulia Goldman: Don't be a noodle, be a big guy.
SV: Top tips to have a great autumn?
Ulia Goldman: Enjoy the colours!
