Matador Review

A Quarterly Missive of Alternative Concern

Julia Soboleva


Julia Soboleva is an artist and educator based in the UK. Julia's work resides in the dual realm between known and unknown, reality and paranoia, metaphor and possibility. In her theatrical sets, Julia explores the distance between meaning and interpretation and how this phenomena eliminates any definition. Julia investigates the ambiguity and unattainability of the narrative and a character through an intuitive image making. She predominantly works with found and vintage images and her techniques involve various image manipulations like painting, collage, or digital. Julia has just accomplished her MA Illustration at Manchester Metropolitan University and currently working as a freelance illustrator and designer. See more of her work here.
