PASADENA—Sevag Mahserejian has always had at least one foot in the arts, while other limbs raced around feeding his curiosity, always returning to the world of art he found himself in and applying tiny samples of what his learnings, travels, and experiences brought to the table.
Starting off in music as most Armenian children do, Sevag quickly found himself—and most of his limbs—on the theatrical stage. In 2011, these playful transitions settled on creating large installation pieces. Teaming up with the Los Angeles-based art collective Cartel, Sevag began venturing into new territory and creating large installations in part with Downtown Los Angeles’s Art Walk, and numerous other events organized by Cartel. In 2013, Sevag was commissioned to create a mural for the Los Angeles Unified School District and later commissioned to create a series of paintings for Uniti Bank. After numerous collaborations and group shows, Sevag will be showcasing a series of canvas paintings during his Solo Exhibition “Art of Sev.”
The show will be taking place on Sunday, October 11 at 6:00pm in the backroom of Pasadena’s Meat District restaurant located at 69 N. Raymond Ave. To accompany the art, there will be a special DJ Set by Bei Ru. For more information about Sevag and his work, please visit www.sev86.com.
An Armenian from California, Sevag Mahserejian has become an artist of many means, fusing culture, painting, theatre, writing, and film all into one. Exhibited throughout Los Angeles, Sevag is no stranger to experimenting with new media and diving head first into the variety the world of art provides. Ranging from large installation pieces that resonate with his childlike imagination, to illustrations that play on negative spaces, to stencils, murals, and paintings showcase his creativity and provide an all-access pass to spectators.
