Kulakova’s polymer canvases

Russia’s Mariya Kulakova (pterdaktell) doesn’t just take a painterly approach to her beads, she uses polymer clay as her canvas!

The twenty year old produces polymer Picassos, Klimts, Warhols, Van Goghs and her own flowers and scenes on bead canvases.

Check out the Flickr site of this St. Petersburg artist’s dazzlingly bright colors sometimes mixed with caned spirals and traditional onion dome beads.

            I love everything colorful and Mariya’s work is stunning. For a twenty year old to be that focused and so talented at a young age makes me wonder what the art world has in store for her…or what SHE has in store for the art world.

            I thinks it’s such a great compliment for someone to see a picture and say, “I want one, where can I buy them”?

                    Wow I love her work. I wonder how she does it. Is it paint on clay or all clay? thanks

                      she’s so prolific for one so young, though I guess I had loads of energy when I was that age, too! LOL I can’t imagine painting all those beads! She does such a great job with color and scale.
