Presenting Jean Boghossian’s first solo exhibition with Ayyam Gallery, the show will highlight 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 destruction”. Boghossian applies these techniques to various mediums, including canvas, paper, and paintings, to deliver universal and harmonious works. The exhibition will also include one of Boghossian’s mixed media and burn polystyrene installations, as featured in the Armenia Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2017.
