Amazing Things is proud to present Colorful Escapes the works of Raffi Kodjian!

What is reality and what is fantasy? This is the fascinating dilemma that I express in my art, with humor, gusto, and frivolity. Taking an ordinary object, I try to manipulate it to express different meaning and interpretations. My goal is to make people stop, think, and use their imagination. I want people to say, “what is he thinking?” Respectful of all genres and art expressions, I am inspired and influenced by the masters as well as nature and daily life. 

I grew up in Watertown, Massachusetts in the 1970’s, showing an interest in art at an early age. Primarily, I am a self-taught artist. I am a past member of the Watertown Art Association. Currently, I am a member of the Framingham Artist Guild. I earned an Associate Degree in Architecture from Wentworth Institute of Technology, a Bachelor’s Degree of Art History from Boston University, and a Master’s Degree in Architecture from Illinois Institute of  Technology. Currently I live in Ashland with my wife Colleen.
