Bio:

Tania Yakunova (full name Tetiana Yakunova) is an award-winning illustrator and artist from Kyiv, Ukraine. She started her artistic journey in 2014 and has been working on projects from around the world. Her field of work spreads from commercial, book, and editorial illustrations to internationally exhibit personal artworks.

Tania finds a lot of her inspiration in the avant-garde art and design of the 20 century. She explores ordinary objects, forms, and stories to find rhythm and magic beauty in them. She deconstructs reality into simple forms and ideas for the experience of child-like excitement of colors, lines, and shapes of everyday life. Her field is a mix of illustration, fine art, and crafts. She added ceramic sculpture to her art practice as new media lately.
