Yri Slyusaryansky, born in 1949 in Moscow, was a talented artist and architect who immigrated to the United States in 1980 and settled in New York in 1983. Throughout his life, Yri had a deep love for the USA, always emphasizing the syllable “USA” in the middle of his last name, SlyUSAryansky. He devoted his free time to painting and wood carving while working as an architect.
After relocating to New York, Yri joined a company specializing in rug design and manufacturing.
