artist profile: Armando Zirakzadeh – CSArt Colorado

“I am working primarily in intaglio printmaking and colored pencil and marker drawings. My subject matters range from complete abstraction to pop art with an emphasis on printmaking materials and imagery (repetition, collages, and color experimentation). I plan to create two-dimensional art work that is based upon my experiences as a Colorado native of 56 years; for example, my landscapes are based on life drawings which have been abstracted to share my personal vision and voice with the audience. All prints will be one of a kind artist’s proofs with several related prints coming off of the same plates.

As an artist who is reconnecting with the art world, I would welcome the challenge of creating art work for a core audience, and seeing what other local artists are creating as well.”
