Gago Oganesyan
Gago's formal art education came from the H. Kojoyan Art School and Terlemezian Art College in Yerevan, Armenia. He received his Master's degree in Fine Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts in Yerevan, Armenia in 1985. Gago's creations range from visions of apocalyptic horror presented in vivid, intricate detail…to simple, quiet studies in poignant graceful lines. The broad range of his work, from his choice of mediums to the meaning which imbues each piece, reflects the artist's own philosophy: "There is not one particular message that I am trying to convey, but the entire spectrum of human emotions, passions, fears, desires, dreams and conflicts.

All Around me
The Belton, Texas-based heavy rock quintet Flyleaf formed in 2000 when frontwoman Lacey Mosley played a string of the dark, hard-edged songs she consistently wrote as a brooding teen for drummer James Culpepper. After a brief period of playing together, they recruited guitarists Sameer Bhattacharya and Jared Hartmann, members of a local outfit that had recently called it quits. In 2002, bassist Pat Seals joined, and the band, initially known as Passerby, was born. 

I Picked this music video because the obvious. It was a very well done video.

George Mathieu was born in 1921. I began with studying literature and philosophy but than switched to when he was twenty-one. He started with painting realistic landscapes and portraits then he developed a highly distinctive Abstract Expressionist personal style, which grew out of an emotionally driven, improvised and intuitive act of painting.

The Foo Fighters was formed in 1995 by Lead singer Dave Grohl. They are very influenced by Nirvana. Dave Grohl started out solo. Playing all the insturments for his band. His first record caused a bidding war between companies. Instead of embarking on a new solo career, Dave started The Foo Fighters. Over the years this band has become very popular. Topping off many billboard and other music charts.

The Medium is visual Arts.

The elements of design Are combining the music with a visual experience. Such as video, And different clips of pictures.

I chose this piece because I think its one of the most well done music videos. They way they use clips of pictures is very artist. I think it realates to painting in a subtle but obvious.  its visual Like most paintings and if you were to take away the music it would still tell a story.
