Julia Soboleva is a Latvia born, UK based mix-media artist. Her process involves painting and collage on found photographic imagery. Meditating on the themes of madness and reality, Soboleva is constructing mysterious narratives with ominous overtones and absurd humour. Being born and raised in a post era and not being able to find her own place against the complicated past of her nation, Soboleva explores the notions of family, taboo, and transgenerational trauma in her work. She obtained a Master’s Degree in Illustration at Manchester School of Art in 2018, and is now working as an educator and freelance designer. See her work here.
Julia’s “Bleeding Series No. 40 Untitled” is the cover of our forthcoming spring 2019 issue.
