Alexandra Manukyan’s surreal paintings cloaked with symbolism and mysticism — along with beauty, power and pain

Alexandra Manukyan, an artist based-in Los Angeles, dwells in the dark, mystical dreamy-world as depicted in her paintings below. Her female characters seem to have possessed the power over men, and subjected them to bondage and pain. In each artwork, Alexandra has incredibly captured the beauty, confidence and self-esteem, along with the emotional and physical scars, of her subjects. Please scroll down and explore the creative mind of the artist and her beautiful artworks — cloaked with symbolism and mysticism!
