Yuri Z (Kansas, 1980)
Yuri Zupancic Aka Yuri Z is an American artist working in classical, digital, and hybrid mediums. His works include miniature oil paintings on microchips, video art, installations, drawing and sculpture.
While he uses software and digital tools, he also seeks tangible, sculptural uses for obsolete electronics.
Largely self-taught, he draws inspiration from science, literature, and a life spent exploring international cities and natural landscapes.
He came of age just as the internet radically transformed our world, and the existential questions posed by this development are pervasive in his work.
He lives and works in Paris, France.
