Shant Beudjekian: Landscapes and Still Life

September 6 - November 4, 2022, Central Library 


Influenced by a myriad of styles such as Impressionism, Fauvism, Cubism, Futurism, and Avant-garde, Shant Beudjekian’s paintings reveal the play of light, color value and composition in perfect harmony. Mr. Beudjekian’s work stems from a desire to express a new genre and vision to the world while also paying homage to earlier styles of art.

Born in the city of Beirut, Lebanon, he discovered a passion for art around the age of 14. Mr. Beudjekian moved to California in 1995 and received a 4-year Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts with a minor in Ceramics at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. He also attended a one-year internship at Rhode Island School of Design in Landscape Architecture, before returning to California to become a full-time artist in the local art communities of Southern California.

Mr. Beudjekian has received acceptances from curators and gallery directors in the East Coast. Now living in the West Coast, his work has been exhibited numerous times at the San Diego Art Institute of the Living Artists, Del Mar Art Center, San Diego Hospice and Palliative Care, and Forest and Ocean Gallery in Laguna Beach. His work has been well received at various juried competitions, such as the Bonita Museum, North Park Art Festival, and La Holla Art Association. One can find Mr. Beudjekian also working as a full time artist at Sea World.
