private architecture business and teaching as a professor of Architectural
Technology. All while having his loving wife and two children.

Original paintings by Yuri Sura, draw out impressionism and symbolism, tied
to his work in sculpting, and writing as well as architecture. Together this forms
the notion of purity in geometric form, paralleling the purity of life experiences
as they are unfolding in that moment. Together the reader will be held through
this encapsulating narrative.
