About the Artist

About The Artist

Yuri Tayshete (1970, Ichikawa City, Japan) is a self-taught artist who mainly works with oil painting. By applying dynamic brush strokes and fresh colors, Yuri creates intense poetic moments created by means of ordinary subjects. She currently lives and works in New York City.

Yuri’s ultimate goal is in finding harmony in the universe by looking at everyday things that affirm each other. She wants to portray this view of the world through her still life paintings. Her paintings also bring out the dialog between light and shadow; inorganic and organic; and natural and synthetic.

Characteristics of Yuri’s painting such as contemporary aesthetics, minimalism, bold brush strokes, fresh colors, are influenced by her teacher and guide, Karen O’Neil. However, isolated feelings and harmonious connections among the subjects are uniquely her own.
