Featured Artist - Atom Hovhanesyan
NY based artist since 2009, working primarily in oil and ink. Studied at the Art Students League, National Academy of NY and Grand Central Academy. Traditional choice of materials and medium, grind my own colors. In the abstract works: my goal is to create a unified atmosphere and sense of luminosity. Bits and pieces of forms from memory are utilized as building blocks for constructing the composition. There is no narrative or a specific reading, more of an epilogue that's open to interpretation, I'm trying to create a space complex enough and compelling enough to act as a point of departure, while retaining the often accidental mystery and painterly energy.
