MISTAKES? I DON’T KNOW HER

Russian artist Varya Yakovleva invites us into her active world of unbridled watercolour and free-hand pencil and charcoal drawings where mistakes are literally non-existent.
MISTAKES? I DON'T KNOW HER 1

WORDS BY THE AUTHOR / My motto is: „Our imperfections make our personalities.“ My tools are the spot and the line. My ‚main receipt‘ is no fear of making mistakes as only through mistakes, you can find a way to something new and unusual.

Guided by plastic expressiveness, I depict the real world. I love form and composition, especially multi-figured composition. They inspire me in my creative work.
