Art Opening this Sat May 3 - "Four Months in Heaven" by Vahe Berberian
FoundTrack amiga Vanessa from the Ambrogi | Castanier Gallery is hosting an art opening this Saturday featuring the paintings of Vahe Berberian. Berberian (also a writer and director) has a really raw and simple form to his paintings, so far as to say they are reminiscent of cave drawings. The work gives off a really simple yet honest vibe and his work style suits this as he believes in being in isolation while working.
See details for the opening reception on the invite above- it's on Saturday May 3rd from 6-10pm and if you're in the LA area, you can catch the exhibit until May 24th. Berberian also happens to be friends with another famous Armenian artist, the musician Serj Tankian (of System of a Down and Solo fame). This music video is an alternate but official take on Tankian's song "Sky is Over" and features Vahe painting an entire piece during the course of the song. Very cool stuff to witness:
