Yuri Kadamov is a Lithuanian citizen of Russian descent, who is currently imprisoned on federal death row in Terre Haute, Indiana under the name Jurijus Kadamovas. Yuri has been in solitary confinement since March 2003.
Yuri is a talented musician, but since his conviction and death sentence, he has turned his artistic talent to drawing and painting. Yuri is a dedicated, hard-working artist. He has created more than 4,000 works on canvas and paper. His artwork has been displayed in several exhibitions, including his first solo exhibition in November 2013 through January 2014 at the Grand Theatre in Frankfort, Kentucky, and most recently as part of the 2016 "What's Right, What's Left: Democracy in America" exhibition at the Phoenix Gallery in Chelsea, New York City from January 6th through the 30th.
Yuri is seeking someone to produce and direct his artistic collaborations with other artists as well as professional representation concerning his art. He is also interested in artistic feedback from other practitioners in the field, opportunities to show his art, and other professional artist representation.
Yuri implores you to sign his petition calling for an end to the unconstitutional, inhumane practice of solitary confinement on Federal Death Row. A link to the petition is below.
