Yuri Shatunov died suddenly in the summer, he was 48 years old. Fans of the artist even now regularly bring flowers to his grave, she is buried in white roses.
In the meantime, the singer’s relatives, in between trials and showdowns with Andrei Razin, took care of the monument. For the first time in a long time, a publication appeared on Yuri’s blog. His widow Svetlana showed the artist’s fans a sketch of the future monument. On it, Shatunov is depicted standing on stage with a microphone in his hands.
“The author asked me not to give his name for now, so that the hype around the project does not harm and does not distract from work. Over time, we will, of course, announce the name. Most likely, this will happen when the monument has already been cast. In the meantime, we have a draft design. The author, anticipating possible comments from Yura’s admirers, asked me to convey that the maximum portrait resemblance will be achieved when creating a full-sized figure of Yura. And this sketch is a sketch of a monument of a small size of 60 centimeters,” Svetlana shared.
By the way, fans have long discussed how the monument should look like on the grave of Shatunov. The figure of the artist with a bouquet of flowers in his hands became the leader of the popular opinion, but his wife rejected this idea, explaining that knowing Yuri’s tastes, he would not agree with this option.
