About the Artist

Narek Barseghyan (b.1993, Armenia) is an artist living and working in Yerevan, Armenia. He graduated from Armenia’s Academy of Fine Arts in 2015, where he was classically trained in the department of painting. In 2016, he was awarded the distinguished Presidential Youth Prize for painting regarding his series “Identity”. Among his influencers are artists Rembrandt, Schiele, Munch, Bacon, and Basquiat. Though his works remain figural, his recent years have seen a movement away from realistic representation, in which space and perspective are abstracted or removed altogether. Often incorporating multilingual stream-of consciousness text, vivid colors, glitter, and imagery from Yerevan street culture, his painting and digital oeuvre are reminiscent of Pop art movements in their collage-like compositions and incorporation of popular culture. Recently, Barseghyan has been exploring three dimensional constructions through fashion collaborations (Leather Show 2018), mask-making (Monsters-ROT, 2018), installation (Urvakan 2019), as well as digital representation (Children’s Games, 2019-2020).
