Alexander “Skunder ” Boghossian
Style: Abstract/ Surrealism Fine Art
Medium: Goat Skin, Oil, Ink, Crayon, Bark
Fun Fact: He got to hang out with the likes of Leopold Senghor and Aime Cesaire the later Of whom ‘Made and introduced surealism clearer” to him
Quote: " I was heavly influenced by Cesaire. His imagery, the graphicness [sic] of it, was puncturing. I was a surrealist and he formed for me a stronger vision. He introduced me to more surrealism in poetry. He made me read Edouard and Appolinaire. Cubism became clearer to me in its departure of thought, its ideas and mannerisms. I could feel it, but I did not know how to do it. I did not know how to translate the idea. I had wresteled with this in Ethiopia, with Goudbet."

What species rules Earth? (It’s probably not humans)
If humans were wiped out, who would rise up to take our place? Rats? Pigs? Or something else?
