Anahid Aslanyan is an Armenian/American artist born in Iran. San Francisco is her home, and she has been creating art for decades. She follows her vision wherever it take her without regard for trends or fashion. She works in acrylics, aqua oils and mixed-media assemblage. Her work has been shown and published since 1978 locally and internationally in the Republic of Armenia and the Czech Republic. She received a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1988.
My passion is painting. The painting is a vehicle of expression, a magical process, the artist being a vessel or channel for the muses. I don't impose my ideas on the painting; I let the painting tell me what it needs. This intuitive process is what makes art-making so exciting and unpredictable. I do use drawings, photographs I take, collages, at times, but all in the service of the vision that is presenting itself at the moment and changing as it completes itself. Art-making connects me to my soul and spirit, and I hope the viewer can do some of the same.
