Artwork of the Day: The Last Light, Gegham Aleksanyan

Gegham Aleksanyan, The Last Light

"The Last Light" by Gegham Aleksanyan

Today’s Artwork of the Day is “The Last Light,” a 25 1/4″ x 23 1/2″ oil on canvas by Gegham Aleksanyan, who will be exhibiting at Artexpo New York 2011.

For Gegham, “The Last Light” is a metaphor for the state of our global society.

Blue is the universal color of hope, but at the edge of that ideal, it is also eternal lust. The female figure, cloaked with heavy garments, seems to carry the weight of the world. She is a symbol of beauty lost in the diversity of projections that civilization has wrapped around her.

Gegham was born in Armenia in 1962. He received his Master’s Degree from Yerevan State Academy of Fine Arts and quickly joined the global community of professional artists. A member of the Professional Artists Union of Russia, Gegham emigrated to the United States in 2004 in search of a new career challenge. In 2005 he had his first solo exhibition at Seyhoun Gallery in Los Angeles. Since then, he has been associated with several prestigious galleries in California. Many of his paintings can be found at Collectors and Le Vernissage galleries in Carmel, as well as in private collections throughout the world.

Gegham will join us to show his work at Artexpo New York from March 25-27. To find out more about Gegham Aleksanyan, visit his website, gegham.com.
