Garen Bedrossian

Écrire à ce membre
I am an abstract expressionist artist with a figurative bend. The overarching theme of my practice is man, or rather mankind. My visual statements are forceful and to the point. They carry my feelings toward and understanding of the surrounding world. Upon receiving artistic training at the Imperial Academy of Arts, St-Petersburg, I started a creative career both in Russia and in my hometown of Armenia. With a desire to free myself from the ideological and political constraints prevalent at the time, I emigrated to Canada where I continues to live and work on producing drawings, prints, paintings and sculptures.
