"Body Language" ~ Art & Fashion Show.
Mosaix Magazine is pleased to present a night of art and fashion with Body Language. The exhibit will feature contemporary art works by Greg Beylerian and art couture designs by Jude Bodart Beylerian. Working together to fuse their creative processes, Greg and Jude have produced work that tells a story through the sensual human form. They explore the value of the body as a medium and characters that are released and revealed in the portrait. Texture, shape, line, thought and the sensual human form – these are the tools onto which the storytellers, Greg and Jude, allow their narrative of life and art to unfold.

Greg Beylerian, a native New Yorker, comes from a background of design and architecture. After attending the Rochester Institute of Technology for design and photography, he received his Masters in design from Domus Academy in Milan, Italy. He returned to New York and worked in the studio of internationally recognized Architect/Artist/designer Gaetano Pesce. It wasn’t long before he was headed to the west coast to work for Disney in their Consumer Products Division, creating products, graphics and new graphic identities for the classic 6 Disney Characters. Beylerian partnered with Disney’s top character artist to create a new millennium identity for Mickey Mouse using digital technology. Today Gregory Beylerian is committed to his studio full time. He is a contemporary artist who integrates technology as a tool into his artwork. Projects include large-scale public and corporate interior and exterior murals using new processes and technologies, in venues such as the Krikorian Theatres. Gallery exhibitions and private commissions occur annually nationwide. Beylerian’s techniques have been acknowledged in print and television including The Los Angeles Times and CNN.
Jude Bodart-Beylerian, a native of France, inherited her family’s talents for art and craftsmanship. At a young age, she learned to sew from her mother and grandmother, she says, “they showed me everything I know about style, beauty and texture.” After receiving her degree in fine arts and apprenticing in graphic design, it wasn’t until designing her own wedding dresses that she realized her calling in fashion. Not that she thinks of herself as just that. Bodart-Beylerian is an art couturist. She uses this term lightly as not to limit herself. She infuses her fashion and costume design with artistic concepts and methods. She is influenced by other cultures, past periods and alternative materials, “I’ll mix a little of the Middle Ages, with Asian and contemporary.” Each piece that she makes is hand-sewn. She prefers natural fibers along with details like beading and lace. Commissions for her one of a kind design comes by word of mouth. It was through a friend that she was introduced to Julia Roberts and ultimately designed Julia’s wedding dress for her surprise nuptials to Danny Moder; for whom she also made his ruffled wedding shirt. She has also worked with recording-artist India Ari. Bodart-Beylerian continues to create original designs, and has been featured in The Los Angeles Times Magazine, People and US Weekly.
Greg and Jude Beylerian have spent years nurturing and developing their individual talents and skills. They have both become artisans of their crafts. Since meeting and marrying, it was only natural for them to collaborate and create work that encompasses Jude’s fashion and costume design with Greg’s innovative and creative processes. The exhibition will feature original photographic works, portraiture, sculpture, 3-dimensional forms, fashion and live music. It will bring to life Greg and Jude’s passion for the human form and how it can be used in the creative process.
The exhibition will be open on Saturday, November 6, 2004 at 7:00 pm. It will also be accessible the following day, Sunday, November 7, 12 pm to 5 pm. Mosaix Magazine would like to thank its sponsors for their support. Sponsors include POM Wonderful, East West Bank, Ara Shabanian - Smith Barney, Lucy Marikian – Allstate, Genesis Funding, Carousel Restaurant, and the Law Offices of Paul Philips.
