About Yana Uvarova:
Yana Uvarova is a Russian visual artist, based in Miami. Her art deal with current affairs and mass consumption, absorbing her inspiration from human imperfections, social instability, chickpeas and the color black. Her short films and photographs have been screened at multiple international exhibitions and film festivals.
She was born almost 30 years ago in Russia. From there she had to move to Germany, Holland and Italy, before finally coming to Miami. Being raised in such a supressed political environment had important influences in her work. Exaggeration is certainly a trait of the art of Yana Uvarova. Her art is for those who is finally tired of polished and glance pretty art and is seeking extreme visual experiences.
More than a year ago, Yana Uvarova started the HONEY NOON project, that consists in realizing our self-abuse. The photographs are all related to the personal experiences of the models and the photographer. The purpose of this project is to give voice to all the abused women and to be aware of your own psychological weaknesses.
