Armenia-born Tigran Tsitoghdzyan, currently based-in New York, has been painting and drawing since at his tender age of just 5 years old. He was soon discovered and propelled into the world of art, and held a solo exhibition at the age of 10. Now, having a Master of Art degree and loads of experience, Tigran creates incredibly realistic oil portrait paintings. His series titled “Mirror” featured below is not only beautifully rendered but it narrates our high-tech culture, where privacy and anonymity has considerably diminished. The portraits of women with their hands covering their faces seem to suggest that no matter what you do, you will still be exposed in the world of technology. These portraits, which he calls the technology renaissance, are part of his Millenium collection.
Enjoy these amazing photo-realistic paintings!
