 MARTIN BAROOSHIAN

American contemporary artist, Martin Barooshian studied printmaking in 1956 with the internationally renowned printmaker, H.W. Hayter. His early work was influenced by the Surrealists, Gauguin, William Blake and Gorky. His subject matter is frequently mythological but he also deals with current affairs as represented by his series of prints on endangered species, and an etching entitled "Olympic Hurdler" which was designed specially for the 22nd Olympiad. A review of one of his recent exhibitions in New York City states: 

 

“The early paintings of Mr. Barooshian with their mythological allusions and contained contrapuntal spaces, have given way to an approach that holds great immediacy. Coupled with an elegance and beauty of execution, his current approach has produced a style that is visually compelling and superbly individual. It is gratifying to see printmaking of such a high order and inventiveness. The medium is one of great complexity, the techniques of which are masterfully set forth in a valuable booklet prepared by the artist himself and entitled ‘Some Thoughts On Paper and Printmaking.’ It enhances one’s understanding and respect for an art that is at once ancient and new.”
