This biography from the Archives of AskART:
John Zurier (b. 1956 Santa Monica, California)

A painter of abstraction, John Zurier, from Berkeley, California, paints on canvases that are handmade and imported from Russia.  He likes these canvases because they are rough and inconsistent with sculptural qualities that he enhances with his paint applications that range from multi-layered to very thin.
 
His reductive, near-monochrome paintings offers renewed testimony to the artist's dedication to color, the material fact of painting and painting’s history. His soft-hued abstract printings play at crossing the line into representation. Filled with the sensation of nature, they evoke the silence of luminous weather and the pulse of a human touch.

Oblaka is the name of one of the series of his paintings, and the word means cloud in Russian.
