Yuri Matsik was born in Užgorod in 1956 and graduated from the Užgorod arts and crafts college in 1992. Being a romantic and a daydreamer, he accentuates beauty, harmony, and the bright side of life in his paintings. A distinctive depiction of dreams, thoughts, and feelings in vivid colours and images is how he expresses his artistic creativity. He uses a method of composition based on the forming of an artistic image from associatively related fragments of reality. Mr Matsik is both a naïve folk artist and a serious trained professional. He lives and works in Moscow.
