  • Collector’s Digest


    •    Yukhnovich is one of the latest additions to Victoria Miro’s roster and was one of the first artists to be invited to undertake a residency with the gallery in Venice in 2019. The residency prompted a shift in her work from French to Italian influences and ushered in a looser and more gestural handling of brushwork that heightens the rhythmic sensuality that plays throughout her ambitious compositions.


    •    Earlier this year Elephant Magazine named Yukhnovich as an artist to watch. Selected as 'One to Watch’ of Elephant Magazine’s ‘Definitive Art Stars of 2021’. Flora Yukhnovich completed her MA at the City & Guilds of London Art School in 2017. She has exhibited at Brocket, London; Parafin, London; GASK, the Gallery of the Central Bohemian Region, Czech Republic; the Jerwood Gallery, Hastings; and at Blenheim Walk Gallery, Leeds Arts University.


    •    As a result of her breakout show with Parafin, Yukhnovich’s work is now housed in important UK collections including the Government Art Collection.


    •    In 2018 Yukhnovich completed The Great Women Artists Residency at Palazzo Monti, Brescia. Listen to Katy Hessel’s interview with the artist here.


    •    During the second half of 2022, Flora will have a solo exhibition in London at Victoria Miro, and will present an exhibition of works responding to the collection at The Ashmolean, Oxford.
