[Artist for Life] – Vartan Ghazarian


Out of stock

One does not ‘become’ an artist, but is born that way. At least, that could be the interpretation of this humorous portrait, depicting a very young boy wearing a cap with the word ‘ARTIST’ written on it. Everything else about his demeanor also suggests adulthood, from the beard to the piercings and tattoos. Possibly a nod to the artist’s own personal creative journey and his sense of identity as an artist from a young age, the figure still sees the world through the eyes of a child.

This childhood moments resonance throughout the essay, it almost feels like Hawthorne try to bring readers to their own childhood memories. The reminiscence of the gentlemen brought  a up few times in the essay, for example on this passage:
