Born in Armenia, Gegham Aleksanyan’s artistic education and career began in his home country, where he made his debut as a professional artist after earning a master’s degree from Yerevan State Academy of Fine Arts in 1984. Twenty years later, his ongoing search for new inspirations and challenges brought him to the U.S., where he has been working since.
Gegham is a member of the Artists Trade Union of the Russian Federation and had his first solo exhibition in the U.S. in 2005. Gegham has been recognized by various art publications, including Art Business News. Several of his paintings have also shown digitally at Times Square as part of Art Takes Times Square 2012. In 2011, Artexpo New York recognized Gegham’s “The Last Light” (2000) as Artwork of the Day on March 16.
In recent years, Gegham has been actively participating in juried exhibitions across the U.S., including at “Ingenuity”, a juried sculpture and fine crafts exhibition at Marin Society of Artists, held in association with Pacific Rim Sculptors, a chapter of International Sculpture Center. Coming up this fall, The ArtScope™ will exclusively showcase Gegham’s art at Art San Diego 2019, and Gegham will participate in a group exhibition in Hawai’i, sponsored by the Hawai’i Island Art Alliance.
Gegham’s works have found home in private collections and galleries throughout the U.S., including Carmel-by-the-Sea, and internationally across Armenia, Russia, France, Germany, Austria, Portugal and Italy, and are available for purchase from The ArtScope™.
“In my art, I try to explore the ambiguity of the world beyond reality. The abstraction of lines and objects aims to obliterate the physical meaning of the images, thus taking my art adrift into the world of imagination—a world as real to me as the reality we physically live in.” – Gegham Aleksanyan
