It's a black day for any of us who knew Yuri Galitsyn personally and those who are familiar with his work. A great artist who no longer is among us.
Saddened by the sinister news I got from @Yana Makarevich that hit me like a rock this afternoon.
Although I knew there was something going on like a month or two ago, I didn't expect his time was coming to an end so soon at the age of 40.
Yuri was a great artist who I respected and admired for his work. To me he was a milestone in illustrative design. Like a lot of us I was particularly drawn to his distinctive style, which was undoubtedly evident in making him one of the most inspiring artists in our field.
I was fortunate enough to be given his positive permission to finish off a piece he was working on for a project during his hospital stay and which he kindly consented - bull's head shown faded in the background.
I have no words left to express the loss of a true talent who never ceased to amaze me. I'm thankful that Yuri has left us with a legacy of wonderfully inspiring work. Undoubtedly his unique talent will be remembered and unequalled.
My thoughts go out to his mother, family and friends. I wish them all the best in finding strength and peace through a difficult time.
Мои соболезнования семье, близким, друзьям.
Rest In Peace brother.

Really shocking news, Gert. Don't know what else to say other than he was a great talent and will be a huge loss to everyone and especially to his family and friends.
Thank you Gert, appreciate your help

Shockingly sad news
Totally unbelievable. Very sad.
Man, now I'm shocked as if somebody hit me with a hummer! What happened with Yuri?
So sad. Really. Was such a talented dude.
Instantly recognizable style and his work was top notch. Also, what little interaction I had with him was always pleasant. Seemed to me like a great guy overall.
All the best to his family in their time of grief.
@Sergey I asked him a few times what was actually going on, but he refused to tell. I knew there was something serious going and that he was in hospital treated for his illness, but I respected his discreteness and didn't want to ask further.
I see. What a sad sad sad news!
Very sad news. Always loved his amazing work, I would always instantly know it was his work when I saw it.
I wish his family and friends all the strength they'll need in these difficult times.
Very sad :(
This is sad, he was a great one for sure
