Boris (Bill) Garibyan – born in the former Soviet Union, he was influenced by his father who was the artist and member of the Soviet Union Artists Society.
In 1991 Boris moved to the United States, setting in Idaho.
He constantly studies the work of the famous impressionists, their technique and brushwork, light and color. Meanwhile, he tries to create his own style. His favorite themes are landscapes and seascapes. He does most of his work outdoors in nature as well as in the studio. His painting style is easily recognizable by his confident blend of color and brush work. He uses the Idaho landscape around him in the paintings. The artwork of Boris is a reflection of his passion for painting, color and nature itself expressed on canvas. He participate in local and National art shows and exhibitions. Most of his paintings he sells to private collectors.
As a land and seascape artist I seek inspiration in nature and its physical beauty. My preference is a medium sized canvas, so not to be visually overbearing with exploring the reflection of my personality. I strive to compliment life’s journey with my canvas and intensely bright oil colors.
I am quite passionate about life and feel fortunate to be able to express the joy of this feeling. I realize that some have not yet found the key to their own personal expression, but for me art and painting have defined and shaped who I am and how I maintain the integrity of my own life. I believe that the ability of humans to express their creativity helps us live a mentally prosperous life and through art I achieve that euphoria.
