Yulia Ustinova, is a Russian artist from Moskow, who crochets voluptuous women soft sculptures. There is nothing granny about her work. Her art is bold, direct and unique.
Her mother is a sculptor, her father is a book illustrator. When Yulia was 5 years old, her mother taught her how to crochet. At age 11 she entered a professional art school learning pictorial arts. There she used to practice painting, graphics, sculpture, and during her spare time – crochet.
Yulia has used the old craft of crochet to sculpture her ‘big women’ or in Russian, “tetki” – which means uneducated and un-groomed women.
