Yuroz October 2022 release: The Jazz Collection, Original Mixed Medium (acrylic/oil on wood panel/canvas)

In music, Jazz was a genre born in the late 19th and early 20th century in a port city, where American and European styles were exposed to African folk and culture, stimulating a spirit of experimentation and improvisation. In fine art expressions, historical stylistics vary even more from genre to genre and evolve from prehistoric to modern times, leaving traces of human emotions that span through evolutions of solo and communal experiences.    Musicians have been recording covers of their own songs and other artists’ pieces.  “Amazing Grace”, for example, only began to grow in popularity 60 years after its creation by an Englishman, John Newton.  Multiple renditions rose to […]

Imagine that: If 30 million world refugees were citizens of a state or a nation …

In the middle of no where, with fear, pain and uncertainty, refugees were uprooted by conflict, climate disaster, or political instability, running for safety. Displaced from their communities and any semblance of normality, nation-less and stateless, denied access to education, healthcare, employment and freedom of movement, there are about 30 million refugees worldwide and statistically over half of them are children. That’s more than any of 49 states in the US, ranking 2nd just under California if they were a state, or larger than Australia, South Korea, or Taiwan as a country. “Respect Refugees” is a representation of a multi cultural refugees scene, a Yuroz mural commissioned by United Nations […]

Evolution of a moment – one capsule of time represented over a span of six years

The name Yuroz has been synonymous with love, romance and the celebration of the human spirit for over three decades.  The artist’s work is coveted by many collectors.  His compositions are always balanced with elements of contrast.  He leaves hints in his representations, starting with his symbolism with varied subtle mood changes by varying his compositions, deploying his lines, shades, and using colors differently, moving the focal point, and attenuating the emotional connection ever so slightly. If you ask a collector why he or she brought one of Yuroz’s paintings home, while the answers vary, the one common thread is the emotional connection the collector made with his work.  About […]
