Hagop Ohannessian is a multidisciplinary artist who connects nature and the human mind through sculpture and multimedia art installation. Inspired by a passion and curiosity for nature, Hagop uses a range of materials and methods, including metal wires, copper sheet, concrete, paints, LED, and sound, to interpret and express the underlying forms, structures, and dimensions hidden within the natural world. He combines these formal studies with environmental installation techniques to create immersive multimedia experiences that invite a deeper engagement with nature by creating a relational, empathic experience with plants and animals.
Born in Beirut, Lebanon, Hagop currently lives and works in Toronto, Canada. He graduated in 2002 from Institut Européen de technologie in Beirut with a degree in Electronics and Plastic Arts.
