Adri Yash was born in Moscow, Russia in 1988.
Adri’s fascination with drawing began as a child and continued into adulthood. After graduating with a Bachelor at Financial University (FU) under the Government of the Russian Federation (RF) in 2010 she continued her studies in contemporary culture at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMOMA) where she was awarded a post-baccalaureate certificate in 2011.
It was at MMOMA where Adri developed and nurtured her strong interest in contemporary and abstract art. At MMOMA she began taking pictures using the photograph as a basic part of her future work, adding color and altering them until they took on an abstract form where parts of the picture are blurred and the original meaning of the photograph no longer lies on the surface.
Deeper study of the history of modern art has led Adri to experiment with minimalist techniques and works using a variety of media including watercolors, pastels, tempera, oil and acrylic. Adri’s artwork has evolved over the past few years into her latest series of works created in 2013 using a collage technique with paper particles. At first glance there appears to be a chaotic order to the particles, but upon closer examination the viewer discovers a unique pattern which, together with gloss metallized paper, may resemble diffused cluster constellations.
Adri continues to live, work and develop her abstract photographic and collage techniques in Moscow, Russia.
