Today’s your last chance to bid on my latest painting “NZ”, which I’ve donated to raise funds for those directly affected by last month’s horrible tragedy in Christchurch, when 50 innocent lives were lost senselessly. Your donation will not only help those directly affected, but the auction winner will be gaining something of real value as many of my paintings have sold for more than the “Buy Now” price. Check out the link below to learn more and make a big difference in the lives of those who are still dealing with this tragedy every day. https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=2022548108&ed=true #christchurch #youareus #arohanui #Aotearoa #NZMusic #charity #concert #auction #ourpeopleourcity #serjtankian #artwork #youareusLA #ourpeopleourcity #theyareus
Only a few days left to bid on my painting “NZ” which I’ve donated to raise funds for those affected by the horrible tragedy in Christchurch last month that claimed 50 lives. Many of my paintings have sold in galleries for over the “Buy Now” price listed on the auction page and so your donation will not only help those directly affected, but the auction winner will be gaining something of real value. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to those directly affected by the senseless terror attacks. Each of my paintings includes a musical score, so you can hear a portion of the music for “NZ” created by myself and Alistair Fraser in the video at the end of the image carousel.

Last month we were devastated by the terrorist attacks on two Mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. But music helps bring us together, so I am happy to show support for YOU ARE US: Los Angeles on April 18 as part of four concerts taking place in New Zealand and the US to raise funds for those affected by the attacks. Let's stand together to honor those who lost their lives. Find tickets and more info at www.youareus.us All proceeds from the concerts will benefit the Our People, Our City fund which was set up by the @ChchFoundation. #youareus #youareusLA #ourpeopleourcity #theyareus

Hey All, back in 2015, I had the opportunity to compose the music for a fast paced first person mobile futuristic sci-fi shooter video game called Midnight Star developed by Industrial Toys . I'm now happy to share with you the 23 track soundtrack for the game, filled with plenty of hard hitting, up-tempo percussion, bombastic orchestra and electro-rock elements. Although the game’s no longer available for iOS devices, the music lives on. Check it out at this link - https://orcd.co/ryox0k7 #midnightstar #soundtrack #scifi #industrialtoys #serjtankian
Just saw this online petition by Australians asking to recall Turkey’s ambassador to Canberra over President Erdogan’s abusive use of the terror video from NZ for his re-election campaign and for denigrating Anzac countries. It’s a good idea to send this guy a message that the international community will no longer stand by while he threatens and endangers others with his rhetoric while running a corrupt plutocracy and jailing all who disagree.
This article made me sick. To blame a country like NZ which is commemorating each and every precious life lost in this horrific terror attack, by a foreigner I might add, coming together to support the families of those who lost their lives, amending gun laws to avoid further bloodshed like this, by the likes of Erdogan, the president of Turkey, who imprisons or kills journalists, opposition members, and Kurds, taking his country into the Middle Ages and threatens to not allow visits to Gallipoli. It is the same threat he uses against Anzac countries that want to honor their own history by recognizing the first genocide of the 20th century committed by Ottoman Turkey. It’s time to tell Erdogan to shove it. NZ is a courageous and smart country and should itself suspend Gallipoli visits until Erdogan’s Turkey shifts from being a corrupt oligarchic plutocracy to a proper modern democratic state.
Kia Ora Friends, Our exhibition at the Boyd-Dunlop Gallery in Napier, NZ is done for this year.

I feel heartbroken and depressed seeing this type of hatred and violence brought to NZ’s beautiful shores. I consider this an affront to the tolerance and respect this country has always stood for. NZ may not be perfect but it is one of the most perfect places on this planet and we’re not gonna let that change.
Hey All, Check out this new video where I discuss my 'Clock Crucifixion' work– and the process behind its creation. Join us on Sunday 17 March at The Vivian between 1pm – 3pm, where I’ll be signing prints of work available from the show.
