Serj Tankian Art

Tankian states:

“My music always has been nonconformist and challenging—and revolting at times. I paint the same way. I don’t look at what people do, I don’t paint within the parameters. I do what my intuition tells me to do. When I’m painting, I am free as an artist. My hands go where they’re supposed to go; I don’t know what I’m doing. But I never knew what I was doing as a musician, either; I just created and was confident in the fact that it is coming from a good place. I’m still in the phase where I’m surprised by the output. I am lost in this exploratory, beautiful, colorful world, and I am grateful.”

Tankian’s journey into the world of art began with his Disarming Time Musical Paintings in 2013, a uniquely audible and visual experience with his art. Each piece is accompanied by a musical score composed by Serj which can be accessed via the Arloopa app for iOS and Android devices.

The app allows those looking at his artwork to listen to each painting’s corresponding musical score. Tankian’s vision to utilize smartphone technology connecting music to art was the first of its kind.
