Collection: Yuri Tsvetaev (Юрий Цветаев )

Portrait of Russian Painter Yuri Tsvetaev

Yuri Tsvetaev was born in Moscow in 1948. He graduated from the Search Results Web results Bauman Moscow State Technical University and from the Moscow Poligraphic Institute in 1972 and 1990 respectively.

Yuri Tsvetaev’s surrealist art style is unique and instantly recognizable. His figurative works are created with a very fine brush, and can take many days if not weeks to complete. They typically depict surrealist scenes of extraordinary gatherings. Each object, each animal and even the scenery is given a face. Looking at his figurative paintings becomes a game of hide and seek where the observer tries to spot all of the unique faces hidden with his oil paintings. The observer is left to imagine on their own. What the scene represents, why the characters gathered and what they are talking about is left for the observer to decide. This creates paintings that can be admired for hours on end. Each time you revisit the painting you see new faces, discover more angles, and slowly uncover its secrets. Yuri Tsvetaev also paints abstract oil paintings. Each painting has a thematic colour. Each brushstroke is easily visible and guides the eyes with grace.

Yuri Tsvetaev’s artworks have been exposed around the world since 1979. From Paris, to Moscow, Miami, Buenos Aires and many more cities, Yuri’s art has been given worldwide fame and exposure. Yuri Tsvetaev’s paintings can now be bought on artvie.com!
