In June 2020 Alexa Rose unveiled its first public artwork—an ambitious 80-foot mural: SYMBOLS OF IDAHO by the world renowned Belarus-born artist Yulia Avgustinovich.


SYMBOLS OF IDAHO may be viewed on the East-facing wall of the historic Jefferson Place building, 323 W. Jefferson at the corner of 9th and Jefferson in Downtown Boise.


Avgustinovich's original commission for Alexa Rose features a variety of flora and fauna native to Idaho, forming a delicate latticework across the Jefferson Place's iconic 1914 brick exterior. A special thanks to the building owner Hendricks Commercial Properties (based in Beloit, Wisconsin) and the City of Boise for their partnership.

"In my public works, I always try to create timeless, site-specific projects for the people who live there. I always do extensive research into the history, traditions, and culture of a place in preparation for my murals.


Yulia's mural is Alexa Rose's inaugural public artwork, setting a high bar for future installations, as we invite artists from across the globe to bring their work to Idaho.


Born in Belarus and trained in St. Petersburg, Yulia is a sought-after muralist who works across the United States and Europe. Her delicate, nature-centric designs are all hand painted, as she completed the ambitious 80-foot mural in just 30 days.


"Art has always been a big part of my life. From my earliest memories, I have always been drawing, painting, sewing or creating in some form or another. 

I went to the Minsk Art College in Belarus, where I studied classic painting, art history and art teaching.


During my time as an art student, I came to recognize my passion to bring art out of the studio and onto the street for everyone to enjoy. There is nothing I love more than creating art for people’s homes, decorating public spaces and seeing this transform a community's appreciation for their city or home. That’s what inspires me and makes me feel at my best as a muralist. 

In the United States I’ve created murals in California, Colorado, Illinois, Oregon, Wyoming and Maryland. I have accomplished many splendid murals for Universities, recreational centers, art funds and in the private sector.

I love to meet new people, work in new places and environments, and go through creative challenges. It helps me grow, always stay inspired and keep learning something new."
