Survive Yourself: Ethan Azarian
Saturday, May 30, 5-9 pm
Azarian wants these large paintings to be appreciated for their beauty, craftsmanship, technique, form, and sense of humor. They're meant to be enjoyed in the moment. They are friendly, fun, whimsical and not intimidating. These large paintings depict surreal city and landscapes mixed with floating chairs, cows, chickens, coffee cups all construed from imagination and influenced by growing up as a kid in Vermont.
This collection of large paintings was done over a 3 year period. The title of the show is Survive Yourself. The survive yourself is in reference to surviving in the world of art and music at the same time, learning to coexist with your ego through the ups and downs of everyday life, and the business side of things regarding art and music.
