Chief by Made of Hagop Original - Mixed media collage on wood block 10" x 11"
Hagop is an Armenian self-taught mixed media artist born and raised in Syria. His work is an exploration in the concept of synergy: the creation of a whole that is greater that the simple sum of its parts. His latest creations examine and challenge societies’ preconceived notions regarding race, gender, and culture by constructing unlikely relationships and thereby giving new meaning and purpose to the subject matter. Over the past year, he has focused his attention toward public art, specifically street art in the form of wheat pasting.
