Yuri is an eccentric, pompous and self-centered high profile artist preparing for an upcoming show and in need of a new intern.
A very eccentric and self-centered artist, Yuri is a perfectionist in his art and demands great things from those around him. He is aware of his celebrity which makes him pompous and self-indulgent.
Yuri is a tall man with uneven dark brown hair, trimmed facial hair, grey-blue eyes, and black rectangular glasses. He wears relaxed clothing such as jeans and a black t-shirt. His jeans usually have paint or some kind of art supply on them. Yuri pairs his outfits with large rings.
In Whoosh, Pow, Bang, Gael Martinez arrives at a penthouse loft for his new internship with highly esteemed artist named Yuri Elwin. Gael meets Gideon, Yuri’s confused intern, who Yuri promptly fires when Gael arrives. He explains to Gael that he is doing a project about the aurora borealis and wants to use Norsemen tools for his project, instructing Gael to get them. He then asks Gideon why he hasn’t left yet. His abrasive attitude visibly surprises Gael.
In Because, Men, Gael vents to his friend Davia Moss about his internship, as Yuri is making him do errands during the day, even though the internship is supposed to only be at night. Davia suggests telling Yuri no, but Gael can’t, as he believes he has to pay his dues. Davia later convinces him to stand up for himself and set boundaries, as working twelve hours a day unpaid is shit.
That night, Gael arrives for his internship to find Yuri painting on the floor. Yuri tells Gael to check the list of things for tomorrow. Gael tells Yuri that he isn’t available during the day, stressing that the job was listed as being five hours a day, so he’s been teaching the kids restorative justice through art at a middle school. Yuri offers to talk to the kids about being a famous artist, which Gael thinks is a great idea. Yuri knows it's great since he came up with it. He then asks if Gael at least paints if he doesn’t do errands, then continues to instruct Gael to paint the canvases identically to him and mimic his style. The pieces are merely the backgrounds but should be simple enough.
- Gael Martinez - Yuri hired Gael as his new art intern.
Notes and Trivia
- Yuri was married with a daughter, though his ex wife took their daughter and went back to Australia.
