USA / Born 1956, Armenia
Yuroz is the artist of the people. Lovers, musicians, poets, athletes, the homeless, and even refugees fill his canvases, drawing forth the spectrum of emotions and moods that reside deep in the human soul. Yuroz' amazing ability to bring this soulful human quality to fruition through his art stems from his own life experiences.
Born in Soviet Armenia in 1956, Yuroz was only ten years old when he entered the renowned Akop Kodjoyan School of Art in the Armenian capital of Yerevan. After graduating with honors, Yuroz gathered up his incredible talents and entered the Yerevan University of Art and Architecture. His natural aptitude for architecture can be seen to this day in every aspect of his art. Yuroz most recent sculpture, the life-sized “A Delicate Balance,” displays an artist with an implicit knowledge and understanding of how angles and lines must converge to create the lovely curves of the human form.
