About Varouján Hovakimyan

Varoujan Hovakimyan is a US-based Armenian artist who looks to explore the themes of time, the universe and self-exploration. Never sketching a painting beforehand, Hovakimyan starts a piece by establishing a mood, applying some initial marks, shapes and colors and then seeing where they take him. Drawing upon a wide variety of media and techniques, Hovakimyan attempts to unpick the way we perceive things and to understand how we are so different from each other, and yet ultimately the same.

« All of my work is an exploration of human perceptions, where the simplest ideas can turn into layered, complex puzzles and the intricate ones into brightly illuminated paths or symbols.»
