Gary Kachadourian’s BIC pen Understanding

In making the drawings I chose to use a blue ink BIC ballpoint pen and spiral bond wide ruled paper, a process I’ve been using since at least junior high school (1969) and continue to use. For these pieces it can be interpreted as being my “American” contribution to the crossover intent of the project.

Gary Kachadourian lives in Baltimore, Maryland where he makes drawing centered work designed to be copied, shown and/or distributed as Xeroxed or ink jet printed booklets, prints or posters. He worked for the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts for 22 years where he coordinated grant programs, exhibitions for Artscape, the city’s mural program and numerous temporary public arts projects. He is currently attending an MFA program at the University of Maryland Baltimore County.
