Artur Akopjan‘s work gives me pleasure and inspiration in the same way that the paintings of Jennifer Mercede, Dominique Fortin and Sabrina Ward Harrison do.
The backgrounds are as interesting as the foregrounds, and each painting works as a whole without being either too busy or too quiet. There is also a naive quality which I love.
I particularly enjoy the saturated colours, the drawn and written elements and the patchiness.
I didn’t find too much detail about Akopjan, but the paintings speak for themselves anyway. I found this though:
Creation is equal to complete freedom; everything is acceptable when it comes to art. Artur Akopjan has no special expectations from the viewers.
‘Everything is acceptable when it comes to art’ ~ I like this. 🙂
Here is the artist with one of his paintings:
I love it too. really beautiful, and the colours! so bright and yet soft, not in your face. beautiful. pinned away to my collection of art I like! (love!) thanks for finding and sharing.
oh Tara, i SO enjoyed this post (and of course, the photos from France in your other post!) OMG… such incredible beauty. You and D are adorable. 🙂 Thank you so much for introducing me to this fabulous artist, Akopjan… i had never heard of him, and what FABULOUS art!! OMG… i’m blown away. I absolutely love it. And like you, i especially love the “patchiness”. I get the feeling you and i are kindred spirits – we have very much the same taste in art and in humor. i think we’re both fucking hilarious. LOL! 😉 Enjoy the week Tara! xoxo
