jola kudela



A Polish street artist working under a street name Yola. 

She specialises in large scale paste-ups, featuring classical paintings recreated using contemporary models. She combines her passion for renaissance art with her skills in image manipulation and digital composition. She studied animation and visual effects at the Polish National Film School in Lodz and, while not doing street art, she works in the movie industry as a CGI visual supervisor and compositing artist. 

In her street-art installations she uses classical (renaissance, symbolist or realist) paintings as reference to create modern images with contemporary models. Her images create a dialogue with their urban environment, as well as engage the audience by providing a social commentary.

She uses models from all walks of life, various ethnic backgrounds, professions and sexual orientations. In her art she aims to transgress the barriers of nationality, race and social strata.
