an Armenian born artist now living in Los Angeles, has been creating objects influenced by natural elements since he was 15 years old. His early custom decorative objects and unique jewelry are seen from Malibu to Bangkok. Onik is well known in the Decorative Arts community as well as the fashion community and Art world as a creator of unique and disciplined works. Agaronyan’s work is collected by such notables as Sir Elton John, Martyn Lawrence Bullard and Kelly Wearstler.
The current work is the culmination of years of fascination in the symbolism of power and death. It juxtaposes the transitory nature of life with the permanence of passing, confronting us with the reality that all the glories of achievement are temporary.
” I don’t want a pretty flower painting, I want to achieve madness.”Onik Agaronyan
