ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

David Boyajian is an artist, art instructor, and the owner of David Boyajian Sculpture Studio in New Fairfield, Connecticut. In the early 1980s, Boyajian studied at Alfred University, the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and earned his MFA from the Maryland Institute Rinehart School of Sculpture. Following his fine art education, Boyajian continued his studies while assisting figurative sculptors Wolfgang Behl, Elbert Weinberg, and Andrew Coppola.

Over the course of his thirty-plus-year career, Boyajian has shown his work in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including SculptureNow on The Mount, Edith Wharton's home in Lenox, Massachusetts, Bull City Sculpture Show in Durham, North Carolina, and 'Genesis,' an outdoor solo show at the Robert Moses Sculpture Garden at Fordham University. 'Genesis,' received praise from bothThe New York Times and Review Magazine. “Boyajian's buds and seeds rise well above the usual dross," wrote Grace Glueck of The Times.

Boyajian's numerous public commissions include “The Weaving Shuttle” and “The Eye of the Needle” at the Mansfield Town Square in Mansfield, Connecticut, “Lift,” a memorial to a former student at the Canterbury School in New Milford, and “Sanctuary” at the 9/11 Living Memorial at Sherwood Island for the state of Connecticut. His teaching career has spanned over twenty years at institutions such as Western Connecticut State University, Silvermine School of Art, and Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford. 2015 marks Boyajian's twelfth year teaching metal, stone, and wood sculpture at his studio at David Boyajian Sculpture Studio.
