Ustina Yakovleva is a Russian artist.
She graduated from the graphic arts department of the Moscow State Pedagogical University and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Moscow.
In her artistic practice, Ustina Yakovleva attempts to organise the elusive mental experiences, whether it be memories of human interactions with space or an undiluted stream of emotions. Thus, her canvases feature both limited calculation and the infinity embedded in the beating of the pulse of life, the coldness of an expressive means and the expressive body rhythm, personal history and questioning the essence of art.
