Yuri Figueroa was born in Colima, México in 1989.
He was taught how to mix oil paint when he was 10 and a few years later he started painting.
At 21, he completed film studies in Mexico City and decided to split his time between film and the arts.
Since the beginning of his art-making, he was very fond of exploring and experimenting with different materials, methods, and styles, which can be seen in the collections he has created in the past 8 years.
The themes in his artwork cycle around the concepts of identity, the individual, dreams, and the imaginary. Figueroa creates images straight from a stream of consciousness, as well as purely exploring shapes and colors.
