Once again Pinterest has guided me to a new, wonderful contemporary artist; Alexandra Manukyan. I am transfixed by her paintings. Not only does she have an amazing talent and technique… her subject matter is incredibly creative. When scrolling through her wonderful website I immediately think of early Salvador Dali, with some Caravaggio, Rubens and Sargent sprinkled in as well. Her characters are strong, yet vulnerable and her imagination runs wild but is still very accessible. I’m blown away by her technique and the depth and feel she puts into her work.
If I were closer to California I would sign up for one of her classes in a heartbeat!
The thumbnails here do not do her work justice, make sure you check out her website here.
