About the Artist
Karo Martirosyan, a precise, meticulous and organized artist, born in Yerevan, Armenia, attributes the birth of his appreciation and passion for art to his formative years. As an engineer, his mother instilled the importance of organization and precision, and as an architect, his father shared his enthusiasm for art, color and vision.
The most important source of influence for Karo is the majestic power of nature, helping him build the structures, using balance and color while imagining the story he wants to tell. “Art has the capacity to break the rigidity of daily life.” To Karo, the traditional grid represents the rigid structure of life. He breaks the grid into an abstract form to create flexibility; some of his pieces are centered on the purity of the naked grid, whereas other creations are simply supported by the invisible grid in the background.
