Russian Yana Glotova grew up in Moscow where she graduated from the Stroganova Moscow Art Academy in graphic design. She loves learning new skills, as she defines it “never redundant”.
As a child, she aimed initially to become an actress so she studied at a theatre school. But her roots soon took advantage and, as she grew up in a family of artists and had always been involved and interested in painting and drawing, she changed her route to graphic arts. Theatre and design always moved her as for the common denominator which is to get inspired by people.”There is nothing more interesting than people”, she says “drawing a face starting from a person’s eyes feels like I am gaining something more from life. That person – as for the model I depict- will dictate what my artwork will become”.
When asked how would she define her style, she declares how she doesn’t like to be defined by a unique one, as for Yana style changes often through the course of life, hopefully for the better.
Her work is currently distinguished by bright colors and marked lines to define emotions and moods, to depict everyday expressions with a strong track.
Her graphic layouts sketch a contemporary world around her, so to give to the messages a clear and intense coloured feature.
Yana is a member of the International Art Fund and currently, holds 2 solo exhibitions.
In the near future, she figures herself continuing drawing portraits, probably her favourite form of art. She says about it: “I get a lot of energy while drawing portraits. What I like about it is that it’s not a one-way form of art. When I paint I am not alone, there are always two of us. It’s a dialogue.”
