Artist Shant Beudjekian's painting, A REFLECTION OF THE SELF
"I have always had a drive to pursue art as a profession; my influences and inspirations are dependent on artists such as Claude Monet, Andre Derain, Vincent Van Gogh and the bold visual definitions of Pablo Picasso. I believe I have the tendency to view art as a process that enables me to release myself with creativity. My interest in art as a love and passion in its earlier stages was inspired by the traditional works of Italian artists of the Renaissance. Moreover, I have been painting seriously for the past five years in San Diego in the genre of Landscape Painting on location.
Shant's painting is on display in our exhibit, SPIRAL BOUND: The Spiritual Journey of Aging - through November 4.
