Hasmik Aga-Sarkisian is an Armenian-American artist who was born in Dallas, Texas, in 1989. She received her BFA at Otis College of Art in Design in Los Angeles, in 2012, and later went on to receive her MFA at California College of the Arts in San Francisco in 2015. She currently resides in the Los Angeles, where she has continued her art practice. Hasmik’s work draws inspiration from dehumanizing occurrences that are taking place in the Middle East and the minorities who are suffering at the hands of their aggressors. Her ability to enter into these difficult investigations has led her practice to continually chronicle national imaginaries, border zones, archives, loss, displacement, erasure, and generational suffering due to denied histories.
