Collectors love Yuroz’s cubist style – so reminiscent of Picasso – as well as his recurrent themes of love and companionship. The artist’s own hardships only serve to make him more appreciative of the tender moments shared between friends and lovers. Drawing on his Armenian heritage, Yuroz incorporates the imagery of the pomegranate into his art, as well as other symbols, such as the blue rose, the book of poetry and the guitar without strings. Each element tells a part of the story, illuminating the nature of the relationship between the characters and what the future holds for them.
-The Pomegranate – A fruit that grows on a shrub or small tree, about the size of an orange and containing many small seeds, each enclosed in a juicy red pulp. Traditionally a gift between lovers signifying love and passion, the pomegranate also symbolizes fertility, sexuality, and potential.
-The Guitar – Always portrayed without strings, the woman’s suitor creates music with his love. This is the symbol of seduction and supplication, an instrument whose sole purpose is to garner love and affection from the object of his desire. It also represents creative energy.
