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.

During my time studying in college as an art student, I realized that I didn’t want to be the sort of artist who is always sitting in a studio, painting on a canvas for my pleasure. I understood that I wanted to bring my art out of the studio and onto the street for everyone to enjoy. 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.
