Prepare your likes: today we are showing you the wonderful embroideries of the 81-year-old artist from Russia who is fighting dementia - Yulia Aleshicheva. Instagram with the playful name @ girl_from_1938 is hosted by Yulia's grandson Yan Gorkunov. He treats his grandmother's work with great respect and talks about them as masterpieces of modern art - each embroidery is accompanied by signatures in several languages and a date, like in a museum. Yan also sometimes films his grandmother in stories, asks her questions about life and talks about her creative path: according to her grandson, Yulia never had an art education, but “for a truly creative person, it’s not scary, because she sees the world like that, as others do not see him."
The heroes of Yulia's embroidery are cats and other animals (for example, tarsiers), biblical heroes like Adam and Eve, as well as pop stars: Yulia dedicated the most ambitious embroidery to the Spice Girls group. The artist also makes embroidered copies of famous paintings - "Russian Venus" by Kustodiev in her performance looks much more magnificent and more fun than the original.
Although Julia loves to receive likes and kind comments on Instagram, she is especially pleased to receive paper letters - fans of embroidery and sketches about the artist's life can send a postcard to the address of her grandson, he promises to convey everything.
