Born in Poland in 1912, A. Yurberg moved with his family to New York City at the age of seven. He began painting while studying the violin at The City College of New York. As part of the acclaim artists collective 'The Bombshell Group', Yurberg was included in his first exhibition curated by The New York Times art critic Edward Alden Jewel. During World War II Yurberg served in Italy and North Africa, greatly influencing his perspective and work as an artist. After the war he resumed his career as a painter with an exhibition at Harry Salpeter Gallery in 1952
Sam Hunter of The New York Times noted Yurberg was "an artist with great promise." In 1967 Yurberg became an integral part of a group of artists active in forming the aesthetic narrative of time, calling themselves 'The Vectors'. In the late 1960's Yurberg ceased to exhibit - but continued to paint daily - subsequently amassing and impressive body of work, hidden from public view.
