Film Strip Series Works to be Featured

We are proud to announce that 4 pieces of art from John R Kazanjian Art’s Film Strip Series will be on display at the Jazzercise Corporate Headquarters in Carlsbad, CA. from October 2017 through April 2018. These selections are available for sale. Please message us for additional information.

Introducing the Flavor Series – Original Accent Paintings

We wanted to create some very affordable pieces of John R Kazanjian Art. The latest addition to the Accent Pieces Gallery is our Flavor Series of original mixed acrylic paints on 12″ x 12″ x 0.5″ stretched canvases. Use these fine art pieces where an accent would pick up a lackluster tight space such as kitchens and baths.  Click on the thumbnail images to view larger images that show the glorious details in each painting. Enjoy!

 

No. 2282. “Traveling through the Pleiades.”

No. 2282. “Traveling through the Pleiades.” I’ve recently been admiring this composition completed in Las Vegas in 2014 as part of my Wellness Dream Series of energy and healing art. The piece is directed toward clearing the “crown” seventh chakra. Original mixed acrylic paints on 24″ x 48″ x 1.5″ premium stretched canvas, this piece may be hung vertically or horizontally to suit various placements. Enjoy!

No. 2320. Film Strip Series: “Neighboring Opinions”.

No. 2320. Film Strip Series: “Neighboring Opinions”. Original Mixed Acrylic on stretched canvas 36″ x 60″ x 1.5″.

In “Neighboring Opinions”, I portray how neighborhoods or countries all deal with the same issues of life, hence the dark tones … the outpouring of color connotes how each assimilate their beliefs and cultures for survival, growth and daily life improvement.

Caucasian Carpet Series: No. 2316. “Flying Carpets”.

Last year I was experimenting with bringing some structure to my abstract expressionism. Having been fascinated with Caucasian Carpets for years, I employed the symmetry and palette of the Caucasian designs without having to tie 300-600 knots per square inch as my ancestors  did.

Time for Contemplation

By chance are you old enough to remember reading the Sunday newspaper color comics back during the 1950’s? There were different strips of course, but the back ground color washes were the same with a lot of black. Here is my interpretation.  Enjoy the evolution of the frames as you read from left to right.
