Jean Boghossian’s first solo exhibition with Ayyam Gallery highlights the artist’s multimedia paintings from his Abstract Calligraphy series. In these works Boghossian applies fire and smoke to his canvases, using a wide array of brushes and torches as his tools. This process unique to the artist leaves behind patterns of perforation or as he describes it ‘poetry and construction through deconstruction’. Boghossian applies these techniques to various mediums, including canvas, paper, and paintings, to deliver universal and harmonious work. The exhibition will also include one of Boghossian’s mixed media and burn polystyrene installations, as featured in the Armenia Pavilion, la Biennale di Venezia (2017).
