"The Artvolution" of Sarkis

"The Artvolution" of  Sarkis is coming to Las Vegas!

The Art of Sarkis will be featured at The Southern Nevada Museum of Fine Arts September 21 through November 23, 2013 These two works of art, "Aphrodite plugged in", mixed media on canvas, 40" x 45" and "Holographic Excavation, Roma to Infinity II", mixed media on canvas 40" x 50" will be featured in a group show at the Museum.  Located at the NEONOPOLIS, second level, the Museum is right in all the action of "The Freemont Experience" on Freemont Street. These two works of art depict the unique creativity of artist Sarkis Mazmanian, combining images of classical Greek Sculptures with an Abstract Expressionism twist. Sarkis brings all the different elements together with neon hued bursts of color in a very exciting way. The two pieces are presented in a tapestry format, which is perfect for these hip, contemporary images. This format gives the pieces a light and airy feeling. Sarkis brings his masterly rendering to "Holographic Excavation" with his very detailed depiction of the broken classical statuary.  The opening reception at the museum is Saturday, September 21, 2013  5;30 p.m. to 8;30 p.m. Its well worth the trip to Las Vegas to experience the "artvolution" of Sarkis!

Gemstones and Flowers


      "Dali meets Disney" in "Gemstones and Flowers" by Sarkis Mazmanian. Fantasy figures prominently in this large scale work, (8ft x 4.5ft) which combines realism and surrealism. Sarkis dabbles in his own visionary magic with a technical ability to make his most fanciful visions wholly believable. combining floating gemstones and shapely floral forms to evolve a dream like mood. In a very personal style, Sarkis applies luminous veils of transparent color floating over the sharply defined geometric forms of the realistic gemstones.  While romantic and visionary, it is a very bold work  Ideas of abundance and glorious colors combined in a very spontaneous and vigorous energy to make this a very engaging work of art.  check it out along with other visionary works of art at

The Goddess Tranformed

With true love and passion almost any dream can become a reality. There once was a truly dedicated artist who put so much effort and time into a statue of a woman, he had fallen in love with her. For many days the and nights he wished upon the gods in the stars to make this statue into a being. The story states that his wish did come true and they lived In harmony until the end of time. But the story lives on, Sarkis has created his own modern perspective of this story.

Now almost two thousand three hundred years later Sarkis has created his very own perspective of Pygmalion's sculpture. Combining elegant art from Greece, with a twist of modern and his other ideas and views. These fours massive panels expressing with great detail the contemporary and classical forms of the artwork. Perhaps Sarkis' most infamous and breathtaking piece can shed new life upon your gallery or your personal space. It's spontaneous streaks of neons, and classical theme will allure onlookers and guests to admire its vast beauty. Don't forget to check out Sarkis' website and keep checking for new blogs!
