painting and mixed media
Anahid Boghosian was born in Los Angeles, California and has been living/working in Santa Monica for over 5 years. She is a painter and assemblage artist. She started her training at a young age in her father’s sculpting studios and later received a degree from F.I.D.M. Ana successfully worked in the fashion industry as well as designed custom furniture until 1994 when she decided to focus solely on her art. She has been showing in group and solo exhibits since 1999, nationally and internationally. Her works are found in numerous celebrity collections such as Sharon Osbourne, Jerry Stahl, and TACORI. She also has received several awards including an honorable mention by the Los Angeles Municipal Gallery. Ana has always been obsessed with idea of imperfection. “It is the imperfect, the damaged, the broken parts of a person, place, or thing that makes the remainder beautiful.” That recently has translated into reused, reclaimed, and recycled objects being an intricate part of her art.
“My art is informed by my surroundings. My Culture, My City, My Family, My Life.”
