In his colorful stenciled images, Chant Avedissian deftly explores the boundaries between "high" and "low" art, politics and pop, the ephemeral and the enduring, and Egypt and the world. Avedissian refined his techniques in Western art schools, but he draws inspiration from Egypt's modern Golden Age, with its glamorous divas and mustachioed movie stars.
