Yuri was born in 1934 in Tbilisi, Georgia. His love of the arts was first recognized in 1953 at the age of 19. In 1959 he graduated from the famous Georgian Academy of Arts majoring in Architecture. Upon graduation, Yuri with two other artists formed a group called "Sameuly", becoming the country's leading stage designers. Individually Yuri found his way into Georgian history: as a celebrated artist and a theatrical designer for over 30 years mastering both stage and international exhibitions of decorative arts. Throughout the 60's and 70's his passions had broadened and in a relentless pursuit of his expression for the arts he entered a new chapter of his career as a script writer, animator and director. Yuri's knowledge, views and passions are found throughout his work. His love for architecture can be seen in his series of famous bridge paintings including the Golden Gate Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge, Karlov Bridge, as well as many others. His love for music and the arts can be captured in his series of paintings called ŒArneytology Yuri's thorough understanding of human characteristics and the love of them are so instinctively projected on canvas that it's not only unbound but in fact you can feel his energy. Yuri's exceptional and constant study of literature and the arts from various parts of, the world made him an artist of the highest international caliber.

Yuri is a participant of many major international art exhibitions.
