Sarah Mari Shaboyan Biography

Reproducing harmony through chaos and dozens of lines is a challenge for me in visual art. Noise and crowds can be seen as harmonic. Colorless and identical buildings can create a rhythm. I like to draw with a pencil as it gives me unlimited freedom, although I still like to maintain a little control over the process. 

Sarah Mari Shaboyan Biography

What is the kind of project that makes you feel like a happy kid on Christmas morning? I must admit that I just love editorial illustration. Receiving the printed copy of your artwork is like unpacking your most favourite chocolate, nothing feels as good.

If you could go anywhere, anytime, to develop your creative skills, where would you go? Ancient Egypt. 

When your works travel around the world, appearing in countries where you yourself have not been and do not even know if you will ever be, you feel “spatial”, more and bigger than your personal self. It is as if you become tiny particles and live simultaneously in all the places where your works are.
