Among the projects: exhibitions «Supermarket» in Lines (November 2020), «Street Chat» in Etazhi (December-January, 2021-2022), «Parallels» in Sevkabel (November, 2022). In June 2022 he painted two iron containers as part of the «Contours of Culture» competition, and a year later he won the graffiti competition for the 300th anniversary of Perm with the mural «Girl with Flowers». Also Yudzhin is the author of «Herring» in Etazhi. The last solo exhibition «Research» was held at the Berthold Center in April.

The main thing for Yudzhin is the uniqueness and recognizability of his style. In his opinion, the work should look relaxed — that is art. In his works he often uses subjects with flowers, rich tones and classic still lifes presented in a lightened modern way.

1. Which qualities of personality help an artist to make art and which hinder?

I can say for sure that determination helps and indecisiveness does not.  Art is achieved through hard work, labor, diligence and courage.

2. What is your favorite pastime besides art?

Actually, at the moment there is no such activity, almost all the time I am busy with art. I would like to find a hobby. Please advise me!

3. Have you ever had a situation in your life that influenced your art positively/negatively? Or greatly changed your views on what you do?

Everything that happens to us affects our creativity in one way or another. Our environment, people, the city we live in. But the views on art have always been about the same. I've always been attracted to works that are easy and simple, anti-style for example.


4. Who would you like to talk to of any person who has ever lived or is living now? Why this person in particular?

Never really thought about it. Everyone we need to talk to will meet sooner or later in our lives.

5. How does your art change the world, the culture, yourself?

I personally need to draw sometimes. I am happy when people like my works — this is how my art fulfills its purpose.


6. What do you think about the future of contemporary art?

It has a future. Contemporary art is the answer to classical art. And every period of time has its contemporary artists. Nowadays, more and more people are asking questions that require an artistic view.

7. What do you think about the ups and downs of NFT? Do you have any NFT projects?

I tried to figure it out when there was a lot of hype around NFT, even created an account on OpenSea, but that was all.


8. What is the most valuable thing for you (in the world, in life, in creativity)?

There is a lot of negativity in the world and things that need to be dealt with. Art is necessary to get positive emotions, both for the viewer and the artist.
