The Coral Springs Museum of Art recently received a generous gift, an original painting valued at $175,000, from internationally-acclaimed artist Yuroz.
Specializing in cubism, Yuroz’ donated his piece, Meditation Series: Dancing Trees, Composition 01, a 60” x 84” oil on canvas. Crafted with a harmonic palette of rich colors and textures, it is part of his Symbiosis Collection and depicts a powerful scene of trees seemingly, as the title suggests, dancing.
Born in Soviet Armenia in 1956, he began his arts education at the age of 10 at the renowned Akop Kodjoyan School of Art in the Armenia capital, in Yerevan. Today Yuroz boasts a multi-media body of work consisting of oil paintings, serigraphs, ceramics, sculptures and drawings, in which he infuses soulful portrayals of his own life experiences, touching on subjects of the heart to concerns of humanity.
“We are so grateful for the support of our friend and artist Yuroz. His beautiful work, “Dancing Trees” is indicative of his deep spirituality and compassionate nature,” said Julia Andrews, the Museum’s Executive Director. “We are proud and honored to accept his painting into the permanent collection of the Coral Springs Museum of Art, and to share this work with our guests for years to come.”
