Marc Guiragossian, is the grandson of the widely celebrated neo-expressionist painter, Paul Guiragossian. At only the age of twenty three, Marc who has been painting since childhood, has already achieved great success in the art world. In 2016 his debut solo-show at Mark Hachem gallery in Beirut, sold-out almost instantly. As a result of this success, the artist moved to Berlin to further develop his style and in the last year has also set-up a studio location in London. Marc’s work is comparable to Francis Bacon in the sense that he is able to combine the profound reality depicted in works by the likes of Velazquez and Rembrandt, with the chance effects of what Surrealists call ‘automatism’. The result is a unique figurative work which evokes an indelible effect on the viewer’s soul.
