“When one art form inspires another, it sparks creativity and gives meaning to what we do as artists,” says Yuroz. When the world is challenged, art speaks and music echoes.
Using symbols to tell his stories, Yuroz, an internationally celebrated narrative painter uses musical instruments in his paintings to symbolize creativity, express his dreams and serenade his loved one. When Yuroz works, he always has music on. Of late, he discovered the pleasures to high fidelity sound.
Equipped with a pair of nearfield speaker system (Eclipse TD-M1‘s ), Yuroz disconnects from the world and connects with each whisper, each breathe and each echo from the instruments. “Discovering details I did not know exist in my albums makes each record a new adventure for me. It’s like it wakes up a part of my brain that was asleep, channeling so much excitement and energy when I do my design work on my desktop”.
Yuroz is no stranger to the music industry as he was the official artist for the 35th Annual Grammy Awards for National Academy of Recording Arts and Science. As a tribute to the musicians and composers, he released a series of drawings, “The Musicians”, to thank them for sharing the voice of their souls. A music lover and a flautist, Yuroz dedicates the contrast between the sharp lines and the sensual curves, and the harmony between the shades in this series to the rhythm and tunes these music professionals have gifted to our world.
In Yuroz’s ICONO collection (a series of paintings on museum boards and canvases with 23 karat gold leaf finish inspired by European, Byzantine and Russian iconography), Yuroz glorifies special moments of our lives to remind us the tenderness we experience with our loved ones and the joy when we spend time in solitude in our creative mode. Guitar and music are again core in the symbolism of these luxurious paintings.
In art appreciation, the best way to see an artist’s mastery of his classical skills is in viewing his charcoal drawings like the ones above as there is no redo’s and no way to cover up mistakes. Here are a couple of larger works for your viewing pleasure.
In the world of colors, acrylics are probably the most versatile and acrylics on paper adds texture depending on the paper grade. Yuroz only paints on museum boards. However, oil on canvas is the most coveted in art collecting. In the following series, the artist shares his creative trance in his signature cubist style, some were painted only with a pallet knife. Held up by critics as the contemporary cubist master of his time, these are heirloom pieces where art and music together express that which cannot be said and of which is impossible to silent.
