The descendant of the renowned Russian painter Konstantin Yuon,  Gabriel Yuon-Ergin has studied literature in Sorbonne and graduated from the National Institute for Oriental Languages and Civilizations in Paris. In 1985 he was appointed as an Advisor to the French Ministry of Foreign Trade. Since his childhood he has been keen on painting and for some years attended the School for Gifted Children in the Louvre. Since 1994 Gabriel Yuon-Ergin has devoted himself entirely to art. His canvases are distinguished by the joyful perception of the world, the abundance of colors and easy drawing style, behind which lies his constant search for new compositional and pictorial discoveries.
