My Life's Story

Muralist Yulia Avgustinovich, Bay_Area_hand_painted_wall_murals_Decorative_Painting_Drawing

Art, in some form or another, was in my life from the first day that I remember, always drawing, painting, performing, playing music, sewing, or creating something.

Being a student of an art college I realized that I didn’t want to be the sort of artist, who is sitting in her studio, giving birth to a painting on canvas just for her own pleasure. I understood that I wanted to bring my art out of the walls of a studio and give it to everyone, everyone on the street.
That’s when I decided to become a muralist.

After accomplishing my first public art projects and wall murals, the feeling of fulfillment and the amazing feedback I received from the public confirmed that I was on the right path.

Creating art for people’s homes, decorating public spaces and seeing how much it changes people’s attitudes to an environment, gives them appreciation for their community or makes them love their homes again. That’s what inspires me and makes me feel at my best as a muralist.

I’ve participated in many art projects, created many murals in different cities and countries, and I feel as long as there are empty walls in cities and people need art, than my mission as a muralist is not accomplished!
