I mostly paint Acrylics on canvas, but I also experiment with other mediums. Each medium has its own pros and cons, but I believe that acrylic may be the overall best medium.
Yuri Garnetti was born in Houston, Texas on October, 11 2000. Art has been part of Yuri’s life since he can remember. His love for art was passed down from his father Guido who was also an artist. Yuri’s father raised him around airplanes, and to this day they are the main subject in his art.
My art frees my mind and soul. My mind is in a constant mania. My art is my outlet and true expression. Through my art, I'm able to speak fluently and release all that is stored inside my mind.
I try to stay in tune with the child in me. When we are children, we act in unison with our heart: outlandish, crazy, and maybe a little annoying at times. We didn’t care what anyone said. When I paint, I just do, thinking can come later.
Art is a way of speech and expression. Through art, I express my mind. I have learned to let go of the idea of “perfection”. I used to compare myself to other artists, and I would struggle with self-doubt. As I matured, I began to understand that art isn’t about being perfect but about being different. Be yourself! I create art from my own worldview.
