Fabian Tabibian received an MFA in studio art from Hunter College, New York in 2010.
His work uses certain tropes of painting to examine the impact of the Information Age on both the individual and the global community. Although his work is primarily lens and print-based, with digitally media, he regards himself as a painter. As such, he is more interested in the philosophy of painting than painting as a material.
Tabibian has chosen an approach that reflects the mass media experience, whereby information is sampled, quoted, referenced and eventually remixed into something new. ‘The history and language of painting become subverted with loaded social content and digital processes, thereby creating new forms through playful and irreverent quotation,’ he says.
His work has been exhibited across New York.
