Ani Eloyan

Ani Eloyan (Armenia,1988) graduated from the Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam in 2010. Her striking graduation show with huge painted collages populated by comic-strip characters won the Fine Art Department Prize.

Her work is typified by a unique visual language that is both complex and layered, painted in a loose expressionist style.
Eloyan’s works on paper or unstretched canvas are collages that stitch together elements from the world of cartoons, comics and popular culture – media that oversimplify and idealise themes such as sexual identity, class, aesthetics and social acceptance. Eloyan employs the same visual syntax to colour it with a critical slant, and translates the issues surrounding these themes onto a personal and vulnerable level. Her work is at once dark, violent and malevolent and yet tender and compassionate.

Ani Eloyan lives and works in Den Haag. Her work is represented in a number of collections including that of the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and AKZO Nobel Nederland.
