"This original painting was created in July of 2016. During this time, I had been traveling by car with my husband and two dogs on a long-term road trip around the USA and Canada. It was the beginning of the road trip, when things were still new and scary. We had been experiencing some set backs while trying to enter Canada from Washington. Our car kept breaking down and we were feeling stuck in Washington for about two weeks and not understanding why there was so much resistance.

Then something strange happened. As we decided that we were going to take the risk and just cross the border, I got a message on Instagram from Takashi Murakami asking me if I would do a show at his gallery in Japan. He had curated a show with Juxtapoz Magazine in Seattle and was on his way to Washington for the opening. He asked if I could meet up there and discuss our plans. We were moments away from going into Canada and suddenly everything made sense. I was stuck in Washington because I needed to be there for something important that I didn't expect. We turned around and drove back to Seattle.

'Release' was the first painting I made for my solo show 'Into the Void' and it set the tone for the rest of the artwork. I started working on it in my hotel room near Seattle once my show was confirmed and soon after, our car was fixed and we were on our way to Canada. The theme of my show was about what happens when you take a risk and pursue your dreams without knowing how it will all work out." - Ana Bagayan

About The Artist: Ana Bagayan is a fine artist and illustrator living in Los Angeles, California. Ana was born in Yerevan, Armenia in 1983 and earned a BFA in Illustration from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. She works from imagination to create paintings of E.T.s, aliens, futuristic humans, intergalactic space creatures, ethereal beings, anything that hints at the idea that we are just a small part of the unimaginably vast Universe. Her work has been exhibited in galleries around the world and various publications for over 10 years.

"My work is inspired by the metaphysical- E.T.'s, spirits, ghosts, inter-dimensional space creatures, alternate realities, anything that hints at the idea that we are just a small part of the unimaginably vast universe. Some of my UFO and E.T. themed works are based on hypnosis sessions of people who believed they had been abducted by aliens and other accounts of mass UFO sightings from around the world. I’ve created human/alien hybrid creatures based on the experiences these people described. All of the works, I feel incorporate the inherent beauty of interpreting both the known and unknown.

I was born in Yerevan, Armenia and earned a BFA in Illustration from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. I currently live and work in Los Angeles, CA with my husband, two dogs, and fish named Masquerade." - Ana Bagayan
