About Hrayr

The process of creating has never abandoned my consciousness, it is the life and oxygen I need to propel my imagination in the form of art expression. Producing art fuels the most passionate and exhilarating emotions in me for many reasons.

First, art-making provides a fundamental component that enriches my life, and the end product, which is the work of art, can be exhibited to the public as a form of creative knowledge, a higher understanding, and enrichment for the community.

Second, art creation involves the access of higher senses in the subconscious, and it is quite a thrill to engage the self in this higher zone, perhaps, one that is more active and challenging than the everyday normal consciousness. This higher consciousness requires a level of discipline that can associate with complex abstraction, and I will help students access this part of the mind. Furthermore, exploring various mediums which requires a form of intelligence to deduce complex ideas into simple concepts.

Society is in constant search for the novel in creation, and l would like to be a part of this experience. So why not do the search for the new in art and also tutor children and young adults to help them find their own unique identities? This is my primary goal, to provide students who are yearning for the knowledge in art creation and art history, possibly philosophy, literature, sciences, which are all subjects linked. I believe by introducing philosophical concepts, references from poetry and literature, and the natural sciences in my curriculum for those in need of a higher artistic development, which in turn will supplement their shaping of their identity.

My experience in art making began when I was a child and I had the tendency to observe the natural world and render it on paper using simple tools such as pencils and crayons, including charcoal and paint.

So I took the initiative in high school, college, and in the university I am currently studying for a Bachelors of Fine Arts to continue searching for creative knowledge, concepts, and ideologies that will further enhance my artwork. The intense passion and vision enabled me to find proper galleries to exhibit my work.

In a brief description, I will define the types of work I exhibited in the past five group exhibitions, these include exploring the natural and realistic world by painting, sculpting, drawing, and digitally rendering in a realistic manner, also in the form of abstraction, surrealism, expressionism, and experimentalism. I work in various mediums, usually in a hybrid of materials and mediums, thus, creating experimental art on canvas, wood, metal sheet, and just about any material that can be used to experiment with; I use oil, acrylic, watercolor, and gouache paint, charcoal and colored (pencils, markers, crayons, wax). Apart from traditional techniques as described above, I also have knowledge and experience in class and in the professional world, with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, and Corel Painter. Therefore, I would like to include all these forms of practice in my tutoring with students in need of current and further development. I have the potential to give much aid to students who are yearning for an education in the practice of the arts, and I am ready to explore the infinite and creative world with every individual.

What makes my tutoring exceptional is due to the fact of my experience in school and in the professional world. I a degree in Fine Art from Cal State LA and I have extensive knowledge in Aesthetics and Criticism in Modern and Contemporary Art, Philosophy, Art Theory, Drawing, Painting, Sculpting, Ceramics, Printmaking, Graphic Design, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, Corel Painter, Indesign.

As a self motivated artist and individual I am here to encourage the development of students who are interested in the Arts practice and for those who are shaping their identities; I will do my best to create dynamic personalities as first, persons and second, as artists. I will help push your understanding to new levels using my background knowledge in art theory and creation. Please contact me and lets work together to achieve your dream.

I can teach you how to edit photos using simple tools and with the knowledge of advanced tricks, I can help your images come to life.

Drawing

Drawing is the fundamental discipline behind other forms of creation such as painting, sculpting, printmaking, and ceramics, and I am a highly skilled draughtsman. I have 10 years of drawing experience and draw on a daily basis in order to maintain my drawing skills. I can render any objective form realistically as my background is in the traditional practices of studying the human form and that of the natural world, also expressionistic, abstract, experimental, and surrealistic drawing. I am currently studying for a Bachelors of Fine Arts.

Painting

I am highly qualified and trained in many forms of painting including experimental, abstract, surreal, expressionistic, and realistic rendering; I am very quick when it comes to associating references to enhance the content and subject when painting. On a general bases I do mix various mediums as oil, acrylic, watercolor, and gouache paint. Furthermore, I will use chalk and oil pastels with pencils and charcoal to create intense renderings of the objective reality and the inner world filled with abstractions because I have many years of experience in drawing which is the skill behind painting. I am currently studying for a Bachelors of Fine Arts.
