Raffi Kalenderian at Miles McEnery Gallery
Originally from Los Angeles, Raffi Kalenderian (b. 1981) is recognized for his technicolor paintings that contain a signature blend of art history, pop culture, and autobiography. Using figurative and painterly techniques, as well as a vivid palette, Kalenderian’s compositions invite viewers to engage with both the formal as well as narrative elements of the work and to find the emotional heart of the work. “I love when something hits this discord, like throwing a wrench in a piano,” the artist said. Kalenderian was recently featured at Miles McEnery Gallery in New York in the solo show “CALL THE CURTAIN/RAISE THE ROOF/SPIRITS ON TONIGHT,” which was accompanied by a fully illustrated publication with text by Barbara A. McAdam.
