A night at Yuroz art studios
Published: Monday July 09, 2012
Los Angeles - It was a night not to forget as the world-renowned artist Yuroz opened his studio doors to the Armenian Professional Society Los Angeles.
On June 21, guests indulged in food and wine, catered by Ladybugz, while taking a private tour with Yuroz through his art gallery. As he walked the guests through his gallery and studio, the first destination was to view the grand United Nations Mural. He gave detailed descriptions for his process in the development of this piece.
Yuroz then invited the guests back to the main foyer to share a presentation of images along with stories of his projects which reviewed his pieces for Dubai, Guatemala and, most noteworthy, the Vatican.
Yuroz became an artist for the world through his United Nations Murals depicting the plight of refugees "Respect for Refugees" and his famous mural. His "Human Rights" piece has traveled to many places creating awareness and teaching people about the continued fight for Human Rights.
Yuroz became part of an elite group of artists in the last 800 years to be commissioned by the Pope and the Vatican to create a painting for a Saint Arcangelo Tadini, Italian priest and founder of the Congregation of the Worker Sisters of the Holy House of Nazareth, who was canonized. As Yuroz stated "Following the canonization of Father Arcangelo Tadini, authorities in Botticino Sera, Italy, his former home, decided to name the church in Botticino after him. A large painting dedicated to commemorating Tadini's life is planned. We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Yuroz, who has become known as a respected artist of the people by the Vatican and is well known for his style of cubism, has officially been invited to paint the image. In September 2009, Yuroz traveled to Italy and met Vatican and Botticino officials to discuss the details. His painting "Light of Compassion" currently hangs in the Vatican's church in Botticino, Italy.
As the presentation came to an end, guests sat in pure amazement and enlightenment of the mastery of such an accomplished artist. A raffle was drawn, and two fortunate guests were each invited up to have shirts worn and hand painted by Yuroz himself. Yuroz generously donated two hanging paintings to the Armenian Professional Society for a silent auction that benefited the Armenian Professional Society.
