Now based in Boston, Masha Keryan grew up between post-Soviet Armenia and Russia. She works mainly in a figurative style, creating oil paintings that push boundaries with their minimalist approach. Many of her works are monochromatic, yet Masha’s masterful use of different shades and hues lends the pieces an intriguing depth. What’s more, the way in which she layers the paint creates unique textures and surfaces. In this way, her portraits uncover new ways to communicate emotions through art.
