Abstract Paintings Inspired by Nature and Music
Gayane Karapetyan, who creates art under the name “Gaya”, is an award-winning international contemporary abstract artist from Toronto, Canada. Gaya exhibits in North and South America, Europe and Asia. Her abstract paintings are proudly held in a number of private collections.
Her paintings can be described as continuous abstract variations on the theme of the beauty of nature.
Gaya’s art is a celebratory profusion of gestural strokes. Her use of the impasto painting methods manifest in producing highly tactile works of art. The raised surfaces of her paintings are lush, reflective, and alive with movement. She explains, “Creation through the abstract art is the sublime freedom to express oneself. To be an artist means to me to gain that ultimate and sought-after freedom.”
In addition to being inspired by nature the artist also attributes music as a powerful source of inspiration. She states, “Music induces my profound emotions, plays on the strings of imagination and culminates in a refined creativity of artwork.”
A recipient of numerous accolades and an author of several art publications, Gaya’s many awards include several Special Recognition Awards from Light Space & Time Gallery. She also received Publisher Choice Awards from Art & Beyond Magazine. The artist was among the winners in art competitions presented by the Contemporary Art Gallery Online and a nominee of Palm Art Award, an online art program based in Germany.
