Yelena York

Selected by Maui: Yelena York

Yelena York is an American fine artist based in Los Angeles. Known for her artistic techniques of both pointillism and stippling, her dedication of time and energy into her art pieces brings the art of craftsmanship to a next level. Both pointillism and stippling are notoriously time-consuming techniques in which the artist creates an image through the placement of individual dots. In Yelena’s case, her biggest piece, “Eden’s Apple”, consisted of over 500 million individual movements by the artist, taking 13 months to complete.

Currently she is working on her Tarot Card series. The tarot cards are drawn from her own imagination, without using an example. Infused with her knowledge of symbolism and mythology she adds her own personality and knowledge into these pieces of Art. “There will be 22 Major Arcana fine art medium size works and the rest of the deck will be made smaller to complete the full 78 cards.”

Before starting her series, she takes several months to really dive deep into the knowledge behind her subject. As she tells about her Death Tarot card: “XIII / D E A T H is not the end of Life, it is Part of Life. Death is the beginning of all the good you were too afraid to let in. Death is giving an end to the Known and being ready for the Unknown. It is one of the most powerful and beautiful transitions you can go through- so make it happen with acceptance and self love”
