Armen Eloyan, ‘Untitled’, 2015, Timothy Taylor

About Armen Eloyan

Noted for his large-scale, irreverent paintings of anthropomorphic animals and figures, Armenian artist Armen Eloyan depicts absurd narratives in his darkly existential work. “Putting together a good painting is like putting together a good joke,” the artist has said. Though Eloyan doesn’t define himself as a writer, his paintings tell sardonic, sometimes erotic stories. Partly inspired by cartoons and street art, his works are heavily impastoed with colorful paints and thick black outlines, adroitly balancing humorous and nightmarish elements.

Armenian, b. 1966, Yerevan, Armenia, based in Zurich and Amsterdam
