Kevork Cholakian

Born in New York City Kevork Cholakian attended classes at the Art Students League and the Fiorello La Guardia High School of Music and Art before earning a Bachelor of fine arts from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. After graduation began working in broadcast television as a graphic designer and later moved to Los Angeles to take a senior design director position in that field.

Artist’s Studio Chairs

The play of what is real and what is not is an important part of my work. I use realism to convey humor, scale, irony, importance and familiarity to my subjects, but often add elements that prompt a second look. A constructed reality.

My compositions are simple, sparse and void of all that is unnecessary. I focus mostly on everyday objects, where the mundane becomes heroic, seducing the viewer to take a second look and see things sometimes obvious and sometimes hidden. I want to challenge our preconception of the use of materials and prompt a closer look at the seemingly ordinary things around us.
