To coincide with Singapore Art Week, Opera Gallery is thrilled to present the unique art of Tigran Tsitoghdzyan. For the occasion, a curated selection of feature pieces is associated with the artist’s latest productions, created especially for this exhibition.

Although very realistic and seemingly inspired by photo-manipulations, Tigran’s paintings are the fruit of a slow, work-intensive creative process. Most of the time during the creation of the artwork, he paints without any reference picture. The artist contemplates how our society has become obsessed with selfportrait and how the life we display on social media is distorted.

Thus, he questions our relationship with an ever-evolving reality altered by a constant flow of new aesthetics. The artist paints faces, unfiltered, piercing through closed hands —the natural gesture for hiding one’s face.

In this exclusive body of work, Tigran also presents his mixed media series, such as his Reimagined works. The artist reinterprets former works and turns them into brand-new ones. From oil on canvas, they become mixed media on paper, enhanced by hand drawings.
