The march’s first spot belongs to Julia Remizova for her poster “Brexit”. She is a self-taught artist with a cross-disciplinary approach based in St. Petersburg, Russia. Julia was born in Moscow, Russia, in 1988. “I’ve been always drawing, I studied linguistics and literature in university and afterwards I’ve been working as an editor in several publishing houses. I think it was very natural to become hooked on typography as a visual part of any language. Words have power, especially if they’re visualized. Most of my artworks are typography based, and I use words and different fonts to (re)create emotional patterns” Julia shares us.
“Brexit is my personal work. I’ve always been interested in politics and recent news, and it seems that Brexit is one of the most (or maybe even the most) important social, political and economic events that happened in Europe lately. With this poster I wanted to highlight the importance of Brexit, but only to state the fact without giving my personal opinion or showing dubious views on it. I wanted to make the poster simple, but emotional. I think that both, the supporters of Brexit and those who were against it, still have very strong feelings towards it. I hope that the bright blue color, which I’ve chosen for the poster, is making a necessary contrast with bold black slightly distorted letters to reveal those feelings. I’m fond of working with physical materials that were meant for something else, their dimensions usually don’t fit into common layouts, and I never know what the end result will look like. I’ve got the inspiration for working with re-used materials like cardboard boxes after reading David Carson’s recent book “nu collage.001” says Julia.
