"NotoriUS Jack The Whipper"
Contemporary Action Painter and Collagist
Yury grew up in rural Russia in very conservative environment where the signs " No trespassing" were hanging on every door. In 1959 by pure chance at age of 12 he attended together with his mother the first American Exhibition in Moscow. Besides " Cadillac" and " Coca-Cola " he was particularly amazed by the action painting "Cathedral " by American abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock. This day changed the trajectory of his live forever. Pushing boundaries, turning down all " No trespassing" signs outside and inside of him on his way to freedom he came to the United States where he finally fully opened up to the new heights of artistic expression. The race to catch up with Pollock is still going on...
"When you look at his paintings and collages you will feel the vibrant effect that Yury projected using his inner free spirit along with a dazzling combination of superbright colors, just as I did... Enjoy!"
