Yuri Yefimovitch Brusovany was born on November,15th 1949 in Leningrad (St. Petersburg). His father was a Jew from Gomel. His mother descended from the prominent family of Samoiloff Actors. This family was well-known all over Russia for a long time. Since 1820 names of the actors from the Samoiloffs' Dynasty never left the theatre posters. It was the largest family tree in the history of Russian scenic art. The central figure in the dynasty was V.V. Samoiloff (1834 - 1877) lived at the same time with Feodor Dostoevsky, Karl Brullov and Leo Tolstoy. V.V. Samoiloff, P.V. Samoiloff and V.A. Michurina-Samoilova were buried at the Alexander Nevsky Monastery in St. Petersburg at the place where the greatest people of Russian Culture lay.
Yuri started painting in his early childhood. In 1962 - 1968 he studied at the Art School for gifted children at the Repin's Academy of Fine Art. In 1970 he became a student of Mukhina's (now, again, - Shtiglits) Academy of Decorative and Apply Art, specializing in monumental art. In 1975 he graduated from the Academy.
Yuri Brusovany had not been granted with official recognition until Perestroika. He was refused the membership in the Artists Union (altogether with the professional rights and privileges). In 1976 he joined the informal society of free artists in Leningrad (TEII). He chose the path of the decedents. Being a fierce antagonist to social realism, which was an official art theme in Soviet Union, he was pursued by the authorities, officially condemned and experienced a pressure from KGB's internal affairs. He was also in conflict with the soviet officials for his Bible, Hebrew and Jewish culture studies.
He took part in the exhibitions of the decedent artists in 1982, 1984, 1986, 1988. Fortunately, the political pressure gradually dissolved with Perestroika and Yuri can now enjoy a better environment.
1985 - His first personal exhibition took place at the Palace of Youth in Leningrad (St. Petersburg), Russia
1988 - He participated at the Exhibition of Free Russian Modern Arts Fund in Germany
1989 - Exhibition in Hettingen, Germany
1989 - Exhibition in Stockholm, Sweden
