serj tankian

A singer, poet, songwriter, visual artist, film producer, activist, and composer; Serj Tankian has always created music as an outlet to express his thoughts and feelings with a level of passion and consciousness that few in today’s world of music can rival. An Armenian born in Lebanon and re-rooted in Los Angeles, Tankian was introduced to the melding of cultures, ideas, and ideals from a very young age. The principles learned from this integration and adaptation have led to his understanding of the oneness of all things and have since maneuvered and transfigured into the music and art that he lives to create. As the lead singer and songwriter for System Of A Down, Serj has released five studio albums, winning a GRAMMY Award in 2006 for “B.Y.O.B.” and selling over 40 million albums worldwide.

In recent years, Tankian has split his time between holding a mic and a paintbrush, having feverishly created over 80 pieces of art since 2013. Most recently, Serj’s artwork was exhibited in Los Angeles at Tufenkian Fine Arts in summer of 2021 and at Stephanie's Gallery in October of 2022. Across the Pacific in New Zealand, Tankian exhibited work February and March of 2019 at The Vivian and Boyd-Dunlop Gallery respectively and returned for exhibits in Auckland and Wellington in February '23. Serj has also taken his artistic creations into the realm of the digital with his NFT collection “Not For Touching: The Intangible Composition”, which successfully launched on the Curio platform in December of 2021.
