Mushegh Grigoryan is an Armenian artist with a background in both cybernetics and fine art. Mixing the mediums of acrylic and oil, his abstract expressionist works illustrate the ever-changing motion of urbanity. The use of bold gestures and color fill the canvas with drips and strokes, which allows a rich density to occur within each piece. The blend of range, style, and color saturate the surface with layered details. The recurring shapes held within the paintings appear to be inspired by the aesthetics of plant, animal and city life, as well as are influenced by theories ranging from that of relativity to existentialism.

Influenced by the structures of communication, which the study of cybernetics allows, each painting converses with the next. The paintings are often made simultaneously, as the artist works on many canvases at once, facilitating a narrative-like coherence between them. Also working as an avid plein air practitioner, the artist seeks to commune with the outdoors and the movement of life in public. The rhythm of the gestures exudes the noise and happenstance of every day, in the center of any major metropolis.
