"Provocative Artist, Hrair, Unveils the Masks of Society Through Colorful Commentary"

"Born in 1973, New York based artist Hrair grew up among the era of 'Gen-Xers' coined as educated, independent thinkers with a cynical view of the corporate world and a more individualistic approach to life. It was also a generation that embraced cultural diversity and inspired a pop culture melting pot fueled by skateboarding, street art, MTV, grunge and hip-hop. And while many of these elements have influenced his thematic and aesthetic style of paint, it is also his unique perspective through his own life journey and provocative social commentary that makes Hrair one of the more compelling artists of today." –Jana Ritter, The Huffington Post

"With his previous Halo Series, and now with the Crown Series, Hrair is commenting on the masks of society. The artist’s characters have the marks of magnitude and symbols of acute power on their heads but they glare with despondent insecurity. For Hrair, the world is a rat race, and not necessarily created equal. Individuals may inherit greatness, like monarchs of the past, but often fall short in terms of merit." -Irina Gusin, Art of the Times

"Hrair finds inspiration through his vast observations and travel, taking in not only the visible features of the public, but an in-depth examination of emotion, response and what’s ‘hidden under the skin.’ Drawing from his early years as a musician and DJ, Hrair’s current Crown Series is a commentary on the state of the world through profound eyes." -Carly Zinderman, JustLuxe
