Michael Mararian

Rendering traditionally cheerful images and concepts into frightening, yet humorous, tableaus, Michael Mararian often focuses on children as the last bastion of innocence to explore the dark humor behind social and psychological issues. What can on one level be construed as melancholy and cruel, can alternately be viewed as amusing, even charming. He enjoys letting his viewers decide. 
Michael is a graduate of the Art and Theater program at the University of Bridgeport as well having studied at the Arts Student’s League in New York City. His work has previously been shown worldwide at Corey Helford Gallery and Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles, Bristol City Museum in Bristol England, Antonia Fraunberg Gallery in Dusseldorf, Germany, Hallwalls Contemporary Art Center and The Burchfield Penny Art Center in Buffalo, NY 
Originally from Andover, Massachusetts, Michael currently lives and works in Buffalo, New York surrounded by seven loving cats – Charlotte, Lola, Bridgette, Zoey , Suess, Herman, and Mitty-Rawlings – and his Instagram famous corgi pup, desK.
