Yulia Hanansen

Yulia Hanansen is a second-generation artist. Having mastered many techniques including mosaics, printmaking, drawing, painting, textiles, and more, Yulia has been professionally involved in mosaic making since 2001. Her Mosaic Sphere Studio, LLC was the first mosaic studio/gallery in the state of Michigan to show and represent mosaic artwork. Studio is currently located in a charming city of Baltimore, Maryland, USA where Yulia works and lives. Mosaics are made for commission, or they can be purchased from a thematically extensive collection of ready-made artworks. Pieces include architectural installations, back-splashes, wall art, public and community projects.

Yulia is a recipient of numerous awards for her mosaic and printmaking artwork, including "Best in Show" prize at Mosaic Arts International. Yulia's works have been exhibited in the galleries nationwide and internationally: New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, Seattle, Tacoma, San Francisco, San Diego, Mesa, Miami, Dalas, Ann Arbor, Grado, Italy, and other locations. Work has been collected by patrons in the USA, Canada, Russia, Lithuania, Uzbekistan, Israel, Australia, Italy, South Korea, and South Pole.

Yulia's latest works represent her fascination with themes of nature, climate change, cosmos, and a connection of human beings to it. She is interested in depicting places and natural phenomena that are only noticeable with the help of technology. Her personal and experimental artwork uses layered glass mosaic technique, where tiles are glued on top of each other. This technique is about the infinity. Like in a brush-stroke painting, there is no end to a number of the brush-strokes that can be applied to the work surface. "Water", "Fire" and "Starscapes" series have been created in this technique. Yulia also has a passion for more earthly subjects such as flowers, landscapes, and close-ups of nature.

Yulia teaches mosaic art at the mosaic schools and art establishments throughout the US. In addition to mosaic-making Yulia is an adjunct printmaking professor at Towson University, Towson, MD.
