Art crosses at the lightsThere is so much reverential almost religious solemnity attached to ‘The Arts’, especially ‘institutional arts’, I thought I might take a little of the wind out of their trousers. I created a series of works about the ordinary “Art” and his/hers daily life, shopping, walking the dog, waiting for a bus, etc.

Sergei Parajanov (Armenian: Սերգեյ Փարաջանով; Russian: Серге́й Ио́сифович Параджа́нов; Georgian: სერგო ფარაჯანოვი; Ukrainian: Сергій Йо́сипович Параджа́нов; sometimes spelled Paradzhanov or Paradjanov; January 9, 1924 – July 20, 1990) was an Armenianfilm director and artist from the Soviet Union who made significant contributions to Ukrainian, Armenian and Georgian cinema.[1] He invented his own cinematic style, which was totally out of step with the guiding principles of socialist realism (the only sanctioned art style in the USSR). This, combined with his controversial lifestyle and behaviour, led Soviet authorities to repeatedly persecute and imprison him, and suppress his films.
