David Avetisov



Heavily inspired by Gustave Doré's use of light, my main source of inspiration comes from telling stories that evoke a sense of mystery. Through the use of chiaroscuro, The Bright Darkness Series uses negative space to elicit a sense of the unknown for the observer, while simultaneously highlighting parts of the painting that matter. Themes of harmony, conflict, mystical dreams and adventures echo throughout my works.


While The Bright Darkness Series exhibits internal conflict, The Psychedelia Series depicts harmony and peace. Bright warm colors flood the canvas to bring about a sense of tranquility, while the use of iridescent acrylic allows the painting to radiate with glee in hopes that it will inspire the observer, and influence the mood to a positive state.
