RAFFI TOKATLIAN - Art Book
raised among a family of artists, influenced by European art both ancient and contemporary, educated in the stories of Greek mythology, attracted to the art of the Italian Renaissance, all of these factors has affected Tokatlian’s distinctive work. How do you do such a culturally rich artist justice? He has described his style as “Surrealmythoclassical”, indicating the personal fusion formed by all of his influences. We had the challenge of bringing the surrealist essence of his magnificent bronze sculptures into a mere book. The result was a graphic book that carries you in a dream like state amongst its folds leaving you enchanted with feelings of passion, energy, and sensuality.
