Featured artist Yelena Dyumin appeared on Colour In Your Life Season Four (4). Read a little bit about the artist here and support our site by joining and watching the episode below.
Yelena Dyumin is a professional artist and art educator who has spent decades perfecting her craft and unique style with its whimsical humor, textural sensitivity, and vibrant sense of color. At the heart of Yelena’s art, and a constant source of inspiration is her rich heritage. After moving to Sydney in 2005, Yelena began blending her European experiences and classical style with the strong colors and energy inherent in Australian life and nature. This approach inspires her characteristically original and harmonious artwork bridging both cultures.
Yelena was educated at Omsk State University, Russia, where she graduated with First Class Honors and a Master of Fine Arts (Painting). After graduating, she lectured Fine Arts at the same university for the next 14 years.
Yelena’s uncanny ability to illustrate the exceptional beauty of everyday life is what makes her artwork lovable. Her aim is to create unforgettable works and impart a deep emotional connection between objects and human beings whenever a new piece is started. Her work conveys the synthesis between Eastern and Western art, the figurative and the abstract, and the real and imaginary.
Above all, Yelena is passionate about the quality rather than the quantity of her artwork – an inspiration that is evident in each piece she creates.
“I believe that my constant exposure to new ideas and types of art is what has allowed me to develop into the artist I am today. I am a passionate artist and my ultimate aim is to focus on the quality of my work rather than the quantity of it and impart a small piece of myself as an artist into each and every one of my creations.” ~ Yelena Dyumin
