multydisciplinar - experiment - transgression - human being - painting - video - sculpturing





Julia Rawal, a Ukrainian multidisciplinary artist based in Poland, employs painting as her primary artistic language while engaging in constant experiments involving the transformation of soft materials into objects or sculptures. With a background in medicine, new media art, and animation from the New Media Art School in Kiev,

Julia is drawn to non-verbal elements that convey the diverse facets of her life experiences as a woman, immigrant, human, artist, and dreamer.

In her artistic practice, Julia explores themes such as sexuality, violence, trauma, body, and the intricate connections between surface and insides, visible and hidden, accepted and deviant.

Viewing creation as a reflective process of capturing reality, she goes beyond merely depicting what she sees. Instead, Julia strives to express her personal experiences, allowing her subconscious to articulate an uncensored picture, thereby presenting a nuanced exploration of life's complexities.



















I am Ukrainian multidisciplinary artist, based in Poland.

I have painting as my main artistic language, although I work with constant experiments that include transformation of soft materials into objects or sculptures.

I have a background in medicine (National Medical University Kiev, Ukraine), New Media Art and animation (New media art school, Kiev, Ukraine). At current moment I am student of Wroclaw Academy of Art.
