Across multiple media, Anna Boghiguian presents sensory and psychological impressions with a brazen, and often crude, style that reveals a critical eye and active imagination. In drawings full of smoke and motion, Boghiguian captures the chaos, confusion, and exuberance of urban life in her native Cairo, with a drafting style that is at once frenetic and meticulously detailed. Interlaced with expressive text that swirls like repeated thoughts, Boghiguian’s works read like psychological cartography, referencing the ancient history and contemporary transformation of Egypt, as well as her Armenian heritage. Often a chronicle of her extensive travels, Boghiguian’s self-reflective work is exploratory, not myopic, illuminating the multitude of perspectives and experiences she observes.
