Brief introduction
Amon Eloyan (ARMEN ELOYAN) born in 1966, Armenia in 2005 after obtaining a degree in Rijksakademie, to live and work in Amsterdam and Zurich. In 2006, the Kunsthalle Bern Gallery, he participated in a group exhibition called "Agere Meaney town" (Villa Jelmini), and exhibited his works on paper, so he is very famous in Switzerland.
Bob van Orsouw gallery made his first major solo exhibition, exhibited his entire "and cartoon-related" paintings. His paintings often compactly filled the screen, play loud, there are a lot of colorful cartoon characters, we are familiar with the phenomenon of mass culture and pop image. However, compared to conventional comic, Eloyan paintings and illustrations of not ordering. Hero image is displayed in the image with the fragment, so the narrative of the image into the background in favor of forms of composition.
Eloyan style is spontaneous, intense. Some works in bright strokes implies individual fields.
