Born in 1971 in the city of Beirut, Lebanon, where Shant Beudjekian’s practice of art was discovered to him at the age of 14, after gaining recognition from the Swiss national youth soccer and won many trophies and medals at that time.
In 1995 after moving to California, San Diego he completed a 4 year Bachelor degree in the area of Fine Arts with a minor in Ceramics at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles.
He also attended a one year internship at Rhode Island School of Design in Landscape Architecture. He returned to Southern California in 2004 where he practiced as a full time Artist in the Local Art Communities of Southern California.
He has been painting for 25 years while receiving appreciative acceptances from curators and Gallery Directors from the East Coast. He exhibited in several cities in the East Coast of United States, along with exhibitions in the Chelsea District of Manhattan New York.
Now living in the West Coast, Beudjekian has been notable for exhibiting Art and selling in numerous occasions at the San Diego Art Institute of the Living Artists, Del Mar Art Center, San Diego Hospice and Palliative Care, and Forest and Ocean Gallery in Laguna Beach . He has achieved also honorable mentions and awards from various juried competitions as Bonita Museum, North Park Art Festival and La Jolla Art Association, while simultaneously working as a full time artist at Sea World.
"Artists have often influenced each other, and I believe the most notable aspect in creating a Painting is when the Artist can reveal in each brush mark the play of Light, Value of Color, and Composition together."
