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 […]

“Woman with Pearls” has been an icon of femininity, elegance and poise in Yuroz’s art during the last decade. With the recent limited release of the “Woman with Pearls” sculpture, we want to share a curated collection of retrospectives of Yuroz’s work, highlighting the different facets of his representation. Just like Venus, the goddess of love, pearls don’t arise from the depths of the earth but from the sea. They are usually round, flawlessly white with lustrous beauty that requires no special cutting or polishing. PROSPERITY, VANITY AND LUSTROUS BEAUTY Pearls were used in jewelry as far back as ancient Greece. The rules of the Byzantine empire dictated that only the emperor […]
Known for his cubist-styled narrative paintings that reveal both what our eyes see and what the mind knows, Yuroz is back romancing his viewers this summer with a textural symphony of canvases, massaging our psyche and emotions with layers of expressiveness. Mixing color right on the canvas with nothing but a single palette knife, manipulating light and shade with raised surface of undiluted paint, Yuroz masterfully conveys the warmth of an embrace, the sweetness of an offering, the tenderness of a caress, the blithe of togetherness and the tranquility of one’s trance. The Making of Lovers’ Embrace “Painting with a knife is fast-paced, exciting and fun but I still stick […]

On August 23rd, we learned that the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego has acquired Yuroz’s 1992 release of Kiss Under the Red Hat, a limited edition serigraph on paper, 60 x 40 inches (152.4 x 101.6 cm) into its permanent collection. This acquisition was made possible by the generous donation of Mr. and Mrs. Michael and Tami Lang. Kiss under the Red Hat depicts a capsule of romantic longing where the man sifts through the woman’s hair with his fingers like sand through an hourglass and she teases his chin with a caress of her fingernail. She dangles her private love from her finger tips in the form of Yuroz’s iconic blue […]
This year marked our first participation at the Art New York art fair. We received amazing support, starting show planning to post show where we had the highest level of engagement in sharing Yuroz’s art. The exhibit walls were beautiful and tall, allowing for a splendid display. In addition to our booth space, we were invited to showcase Yuroz’s Symbiosis Collection in the fair’s Public Spaces Project. The soothing energy from Yuroz’s contemporary representation of trees in this museum collection gave the public dining space and the exhibition hall a distinctively calming but vibrant feeling. Despite of the sea of people during show time, viewers were able to sit and take a […]
The context of an artist’s life leading up to or immediately prior to the creation of important artwork bear profound effect on his work. At first glance of the Symbiosis Collection, one would think that Yuroz has totally departed from his prior style and subject matter. In fact, Yuroz revisits his main subject of human condition with a new angle, embracing his love for humanity with a new dimension and inventiveness. What we did not know is that this journey traced back to over 20 years ago…
In becoming fascinated by the stark splendor and metaphorical significance of the forces of trees, each alone and in the forest as a whole, Yuroz began a visual documentary of my personal transformational relationship with nature. In the new “Symbiosis” Collection, the artist demonstrates perspectives with a dimensional rhythm and invites viewers to follow each branch of the trees, read into each layer and each shade. This visual exploration attempts to deliver viewers in accord with nature’s order of peace and harmony.
Compositions are repeated in this collection with different shades of a different color system, intending to evoke the varied energy each color transcends to viewers. This activates vibration that feeds into the individual centers in our personal energy system, the Chakras, which in return creates a deeper connection to the art within us. We invite viewers to experiment and see which distinctive piece in this collection connects with them most. “Symbiosis” attempts to offer a little recalibration to the energy centers of viewers as they unearth their personal amity with the forces of ultimate benevolence.
We are pleased to announce the unveiling of Yuroz’ “Symbiosis” Collection, a visual symphony of perspectives and dimensional rhythm where this internationally acclaimed artist guides us to the reckoning of the interdependence between our survival with nature, and nature’s survival with the attitude of the human race.
