Monkey Skull by, Armen Gasparian 1966 ~ Symbolic Painter
Gasparian was born in South America, where he studied art in George Ajrapetjana's workshop. Currently Gasparian is living in St. Petersburg working today. His romantic images and the use of symbolism convey the nature with a delicate sense. His newer pieces are very different from older pieces. He use to work with light colors and paint and currently he is found of painting things that are tranquil and clam. Gasparian has developed his own language, combining the traditions of classical art and the new plastic form.
This painting "Monkey skull" is an optical illusion. the composition depicts 2 monkeys sitting at a window with a boat in the background. Together they form the image of a skull.
