Yuriy Akopov Gallery Director

Yuriy Akopov, born in former USSR, began his career as a glass worker while working for an extraordinary artist, Niki de Sant Phalle. Working with Art Mosaic, a company which brought Niki’s creations to life and made glass mosaic sculptures, he acquired priceless skills that later in life he applied to his own creations.  As a talented artist himself, he has refined the techniques and made a unique application process.  He transforms objects into something magical and whimsical.
