Carlo Keshishian is an artist of Armenian descent born in London in 1980. He has been producing both visual and sonic art for the past 20 years, his sonic pieces have featured on a number of CD and vinyl releases but his drawings and paintings have rarely been exhibited until now.
His work ranges from intricate abstract pieces which show an almost obsessive level of self-discipline and attention to detail, to more confessional, almost comic book like pieces which offer an unguarded glimpse into his inner life. This
introverted nature is reflected in Carlo's use of art as a tool for self analysis and self improvement, he sees his work as a "visual diary of his thoughts" and, like a diary, his work often communicates the passing of time and it's sometimes
illusionary nature. His sparing use of colour explores contrast and intensity, sometimes leading to optical effects, which although not initially planned, add another layer of impact to his work.
The use of rhythm and texture in his visual work is directly related to his musical output, one influences the other and both show the passionate, obsessive, confessional and emotional elements which are intrinsic to Carlo's vision of himself and the world around him.
