Hrair is a New York based artist born in 1973. Raised in London, his interest in drawing and painting at an early age led to him studying fine art at college. He has spent time living and working in Tokyo, Spain, Paris, and now New York – his global perspective has greatly informed and influenced his work.
Defined by the use of a bold and vibrant palette of color, the common theme behind his work is the exploration of the hidden souls found behind society’s masks, a reflection on the corporate rat race, the long corridor of closed doors, and the dread of expectation, scratching the surface to glimpse the emotion within.
Represented in collections throughout the world, with work recently showcased in New York, he has had pieces commissioned in the US, Bahamas, London and Japan.
