The Moment When


“The Moment When” is a series of artworks that delve deep into the realm of emotions. I process my own Emotional Residue that has led to an eating disorder, while exploring my personal spiritual nourishment. Unlike traditional Dutch still life paintings, which often evoke a sense of meditative tranquility, “The Moment When” captures a vibrant, dynamic, and emotional essence of tumultuous life.


Yulia Ani, born in the remote expanse of Kamchatka, Russia, has lived a life enriched by diverse cultures, having spent significant periods in the US and France, and is currently located in Berlin, Germany. With an academic background that includes a Bachelor’s degree in Advertising from the Moscow University of Humanity and an art degree from SKBG Collage in Berlin, Yulia has carved a niche for herself in the art world. 

In her artistic practice, Yulia delves into the realms of identity, belonging, and the complexities of human emotions. As an immigrant, a woman, a mother, she embodies these facets into her work, exploring the dualities of inner and outer structures and the states of mental health. 

Yulia's painting process is both intuitive and intentional. Her works are more than a visual feast, they serve as a mirror, reflecting the viewer’s own experiences and emotions, thereby fostering a deeper understanding of the self and the world.
