  • About the artist: Yulia Yosilzon

    Yulia Iosilzon received her Bachelors Degree from  Slade School of Fine Art, UCL in 2017. Then she enrolled to Royal College of Art, Painting, to complete Masters Degree. Was awarded with Audrey Wykeham Prize and Bloomberg New Contemporaries prize in 2019.

    Yulia Iosilzon draws on children’s illustration, fashion and theatre to posit fragmentary narratives in large-scale works.

    An initial readability in her work is thrown into question by the persistent use of techniques which serve to interrupt the image and break down earlier impressions of visual plenitude.

    The circular approach to narrative is leavened with her lightness of touch. This is seen primarily through the artist’s own deployment of burlesque, the grotesque, irony and humour in images which use as their starting point everyday scenes.

  • About the project: Memories/ Objects

    These limited edition throws are the product of time and isolation.
    Both the translation of a moment of happiness and the desire of keeping that beautiful memory close to our hearts.

    During the past few months, Yulia has travelled with her mind to her favourite place.
    Forte dei Marmi, in Italy, represents a lot for her joy, family, escape, and a second home. The impossibility of leaving London and the desire to transfer these memories into an art-object gave birth to this project.

    Made from an ethically-sourced blend of premium cashmere and wool manufactured in a small warehouse in Italy, the throws depict two of the artist’s favourite paintings from her own archive.

    10% of the proceeds go to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, an animal charity established in 1860.
    Battersea Dogs and Cats Home is one of the few animal rescued centers that run a non-selective intake policy, meaning that they accept any breed of animal, at any age, including dogs or cats with serious medical problems.
