In the Literary Corner…

Vahram Muratyan is a Paris-based graphic designer who was experiencing his “midlife crisis” at the tender age of 30.   Having spent time living between Paris (his homeland), and New York City, Muratyan noticed himself suffering from a bit of the “grass is always greener on the other side” syndrome and decided to put pen to paper noting his daily observations as a sort of art therapy.  Turns out his way of coping did him some good.  Debuting on February 2, Muratyan isbringing us “Paris versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities” (Penguin $20).  “A friendly visual match between two cities told by a lover of Paris wandering through New York.  Details, cliche’s, contradictions: This way please.”

“People always say there is never the time to read a book or to do something on your own. I just kept dreaming in my sketchbook, which is something I used to do a lot of. I always hoped people would see my work as art,” he said. “I decided to do an image per day on my blog as a way to keep that dream alive.”
