Gegam Kacherian

Gegam Kacherian was born in Yerevan, Armenia and received his Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from Terlemezian Fine Arts College. He began exhibiting his artwork in Paris’s Achot Achot Studio in 1999. In 2002, he was part of a group exhibition curated by Jay Belloli for Long Beach Arts, which lead to multiple group exhibitions in art galleries the upcoming years. 

Throughout his career, Gegam has had many artist residencies, in Paris, Korea, Bangkok, California, and the Netherlands. He has lectured at the Weisman Foundation Distinguished Visiting Artist-in Residence in the California State Summer School for the Arts in Valencia, and at the College of the Canyons.  

In 2013, the Los Angeles Valley College’s Art Gallery exhibited a retrospective of Gegam’s artwork called “Gegam Kacherian: Thirty Six Year Survey.” The exhibition charted the trajectory of his art practice, highlighting examples of his early pieces to his recent semi-abstract, abstract and figurative paintings.

Gegam’s canvases are populated with various encounters he’s had throughout his life, weaving surrealistic dreamlike imagery using atmospheric colors. His paintings include exotic animals appear in defiantly shifting landscapes and floating city view. This creates an area where representational and the abstract collide. Gegam has mastered the ability to merge the abstract with the representational.

Gegam currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
