Yulia Kosulnikova was born in 1995. She is working by herself as a self-taught artist in psychoneurological asylum in Volosovo (Leningrad region). She started drawing in the orphanage where her art was discovered by Lyalya Tarshina, who worked there as a volunteer.
As an artist Yulia Kosulnikova is deeply interested in the inner space of medical institutions, such as hospitals and psychoneurological asylum itself. She sometimes is inspired by the images from TV series about doctors and hospitals and medical literature – as well as her everyday environment in PNI.
