    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.

    будем помнить.

    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.

    No :(

    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.

    Terrible news. We've lost a phenomenal talent - many will try and emulate his style, but none will match it. RIP Gal.
