Katusha Ostroumoff Bull is certainly on the fast track having risen to prominence in just a few years since graduating from Heatherley School of Fine Art, Chelsea in 2002, with a Diploma in Figurative Sculpture.
Katusha's work is internationally acclaimed and features in many public and private collections in the UK, United States, India, Hong Kong, Australia, Macau and Malta. She became an Associate of the Royal British Society of Sculptors in 2005, and a member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen in 2012.
Katusha's art is the result of a life rich in varied experiences. Like a cat with nine lives, she has enjoyed almost as many different careers. After growing up in Hong Kong, she worked as a nurse in Australia, and has also been a ski patroller and instructor, a dressmaker, a cook, a real estate agent and a mother. Her sculptures are bold and colourful, but have a slightly elusive feel to them. As you observe a piece on a day-to-day basis, it seems to change with the light, with the seasons, and even depending on its surroundings.
Thank you so much for reading this article. This little gallery presents some beautiful and unusual works by up-and-coming artists.
Tchinai seems very interesting! I really like his work with the butterflies! I can certainly see why people would buy such artworks :)
Thanks for reading. I'm invited to Japanese afternoon tea at the gallery today. Looking forward to it.
These are beautiful. I've never heard of these before
Those paintings are absolutely exquisite!
