Incorporating elements of classical education with contemporary influences, i provides a symphony of graphics, sculptures, collages and figurative compositions that indulge the senses.


“You can discuss and argue about art forever. To me, everything is abstract and interchangeable. It’s all about how you look at things. I love light, life, shadow, line, & color, where the world of an artist begins, trying to sink into art, being drawn into emotion. It helps me to understand the tragedy and the happiness of the reality of life itself. I consider myself the luckiest of all to have been given the gift of creation and I live and work through the appreciation of divinity of art.” – Minas Halaj Incorporating elements of classical education with contemporary influences, Halaj’s art manifests itself by way of a symphony of graphics, sculptures, collages and figurative compositions. His works are oil-and-mixed-media that are attracting the attention of global art collectors. Halaj uses a variety of recycled material including tar as part of the background and pieces of a pre-Victorian dresses to add texture and dimension making his work deeply complex. The Floral Minds collection is vibrant and reminiscent of the old World masters.
