For Bjaka, drawing is a conceptual choice and a way of making a statement as an artist. Through this medium, she is able to create a linkage between someone’s reality and her fiction, between the daily comfort and the aspirations of the heart, between hope and sadness; she was able to create a parallel world of emotions.
In each image, Bjaka wishes to spur a sense of belonging and empathy among her audience through ordinary events or thoughts and in the same time to distant them from her world by featureless and monochromatic figures.
‘Walk the Line’ is a collection of her drawings from 2012 till today, which she started making while living in Germany and continued since she moved back to Tel Aviv in 2013.Bjaka, aka Yana Blachman, was born in St. Petersburg, Russia and lived most of her grown life in Tel Aviv. She creates and draws since somewhere around the fall of the Soviet Union and continues to look for a balance and inspiration in the dazzling and hectic life of Tel Aviv.
