Julia Gorbunova is a contemporary mosaic artist.
For more than 15 years she is engaged in the decoration of private and public interiors and collaborating with designers and interior stylists. Artist creates wall panels, sculptures and art pieces, decorates restaurants and working spaces with mosaics artworks.
Despite the fact that the history of mosaic goes back more than one century, nowadays it is
experiencing its renaissance. Modern mosaic artworks completely change our understanding of this ancient art, the material reveals itself from a new side and sounds ultra-modern.
Julia creates works in contemporary style, complementing the interior with art objects. She really likes to experiment, look for new combinations and shapes.
Artist uses stone, glass, cement, gold leaf, which goes beyond the classical reading of the material. Her recognizable signature style is natural subjects made by inlaying thin pieces of gold and silver glass.
Julia shows that artworks in this fine craft technique look great in modern and classic homes, they become a decoration, and sometimes an aesthetic dominant of the interior.
In the era of mass production, unique pieces of art are becoming more and more popular with people who appreciate the exclusivity of handicrafts.
Julia says: 'Mosaic is my true passion! I want people to own art pieces that are not only beautiful but also valuable and their value increases over time.'
