Armen Ges

 

 

 

 

 

Born and raised in the city of Los Angeles, Armen Ges procured a love for art at a young age. Growing up, he worked with different mediums and explored a variety of designs in the world of graffiti. As a self-taught artist, his style evolved over the years, creating a truly authentic form of abstract. His paintings can be seen as non-traditional and innovative, taking from his environment and utilizing a bright colored palette filled with movement. He received his Bachelor's in Psychology with a minor in Visual Public Art at California State University, Monterey Bay. Each piece not only challenges him mentally but physically.

Artist Statement 

With a background in psychology, my artwork revolves around the intersection of the human psyche. My undying passion for art motivates me to design pieces from a combination of materials, with acrylic paint as the primary medium. Like other artists, I aim to express my interpretation of the world, while alluding to familiar aspects of our physical realm. My work embodies a dream-like state, one without a rigid structure or overbearing instruction. Additionally, I employ the fundamental techniques used in painting as well as graffiti. By experimenting with optical illusions, perspectives, and geometry, my art gains an elevated degree of complexity, yet can still be understood by all. Creativity keeps me going, with each piece coming out different from the next. My approach is all about process and immersing myself in my work. Color for me is a fundamental yet imperative tool. My brand and motto, NoThisIsArt, illustrates there is not a single correct perspective of viewing or defining art. Most of my work has been able to successfully achieve a balance between the traditional and contemporary values of art today. I strive to create an inclusive atmosphere with the acceptance of multiple perspectives and various influences.
