Subversive Fantasy

Ana Bagayan's painting style of children with slightly large eyes and the color choice is a reminisce of Mark Ryden.   I saw her "Silence of the Lamb" painting at the Crazy 4 Cult 3D a couple months ago, beautifully framed and dominated the wall of collections.  Ana is from Armenia, Yerevan.  She moved to the United States at an early age.  She graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena with a BFA in Illustration.  She has a solo show in November at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle, Washington.
