And since it’s Share-Your-Art-Friday–is that a thing?, I received this piece 2 weeks ago from my favorite Armenian artist, Shogh-Ian. She’s a young artist doing unique and astonishing work.

I was able to purchase another piece of art from one of the greatest working artists in the world, Dr. Shafik Radwan, again through Zawyeh Gallery. This is the fifth Radwan we now own and present.

I fell in love with this immediately, for many reasons, but one major one being my own perspective and studies. I see in this painting 4,000 years of Syro-Palestinian-Phoenician with a little bit of Mesopotamian thrown in. This is rooted in a subterranean and beautiful shared past. What an amazing fusion of contemporary and ancient. I’m not trying to over-read your work–this is one element that triggered my responses. Impressive, indeed.
