Karen addresses analysis and interpretation in his paintings through criticizing Armenian consumer culture. Since 2006 Karen’s way of expression has been based on jeans materials. Jeans is the resemblance of the society. “There is no welfare and status difference, no elitism in case of jeans; people interact ignoring the differences”, – says Karen.
The author criticizes the mass culture, evokes social and political issues. As a fact, Karen Barseghyan makes the everyday clothing turn into a platform for raising the social problems. Thus the artist turns jeans (the fabric material which has immediate contact with a human body) into the core material for his art, for his creative world, for the way of feeling problems, raising them and announcing them loudly.
