About Varujan Boghosian

Varujan Boghosian describes his practice by saying, “I don’t make anything, I find everything.” Boghosian famously collected papers, books, toys, discarded household objects for over 20 years to produce his assemblages and collages. He cites strong influence from Marcel Duchamp, with whom he shares a predilection for found objects and a sense of humor. Boghosian is best known for making wry juxtapositions in his work that read like visual puns. He pays tribute to his influences and larger art historic traditions in his work, like in After Hans Arp (2003), Spanish Still Life (After Zurbarán) (2003), and The Hunt (After Uccello) (2008).
