Iuliia Zastava was born in 1982 in Moscow and studied in the director’s department of the Institute of Television and Radio Broadcasting (Moscow) and at the Academy of Fine Arts (Vienna). Zastava now works with animation, graphics and paint. The works of Iuliia Zastava are exquisite while kitschy; a surrealistic confusion of images taken from the history of art, cinema and literature that combine the seemingly incongruous, for example, pencil hatching and shiny acrylic. The monochrome gray background explodes with the brightness of fly agarics and other mushrooms sponging with eyes that lead to the world of fantasy.
