Artist of the Week: Yulia Brodskaya

Yulia Brodskaya is a world-renowned graphic designer and paper sculptor. Her style of paper sculpture is called quilling and dates back to the Renaissance.

During the Renaissance, French and Italian nuns and monks used quilling to decorate book covers and religious items. The paper most commonly used was strips of paper trimmed from the gilded edges of books. These gilded paper strips were then rolled to create the quilled shapes. Quilling often imitated the original ironwork of the day.
