Lets start with Grandma Rook- a woman who has lived it all. a Former CIA agent who in her retirement forested four children.
the oldest is Runihuar(means destroyer), the Egyptian with white eyes and as of right now, blue hair. his family come over to America to start anew. unfortunately his father fell into drugs and his mother ran away. he was sent to live with grandma rook who discovered the boy was a crack shout. she taught him all about guns and where the best place to hit to get the bull eyes.
the next was Nathinal(Closest I could come is gift of god), a young man of Israelian heritage came after his father was found to be dirty. the old man had gotten greedy and made a sloppy call. Grandma had found that the young man knew about guns, and could spot a tail within a few seconds. he didn't have the patience to handle the sniper, so she signed him up with wrestling and boxing.
then there was young Nastasia(she who will rise again), from a Russian family who were killed in a drive by. the young woman was angry at the world, so grandma put her in different martial arts to control it. she grew strong, and with a drive to protect people.
the last was Akesh(lord of the sky), a young boy who family just came over form India. his father was a pimp and his mother one of his prostitute. he stayed at the library for most of the time when his mother went to “work” it wasn't until she didn't come home that he was sent to Grandma Rook. since the boy was felt safe with computers she made sure he was up to date with all the new technology, while also making sure the boy knew how to protect himself.

Space Ruins 1 by Hratch Israelian, 2019, WC on paper
Albert Einstein once said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” We devote a great part of our lives to gaining knowledge, while simultaneously neglecting our imagination . We were never taught how to use our imagination, and the repetition and banality of modern life gradually deactivates our imagination. However, imagination is still the only thing in us that is infinite. Our life, energy, and knowledge are limited; therefore we need to unlock our limitless imagination and set it in motion.
How can we activate our imagination? Well, let’s imagine that everyone has a brand new car parked in their driveway but they don’t have the key. Although the cars can travel for thousands of miles, they can’t move an inch because there is no key. Not only do we all need a key, we need the right key that will activate our specific car. Either that or a bump key, a key that can open any lock.
This revolutionary painting method is the bump key to everyone’s imagination. Now all can discover the key of their imagination and become an accomplished artist. Everyone from age 4 to 104 can master this painting process in 20 minutes. All the outsiders of the art community, can become insiders and enjoy the creative process. Painting with this method is not only pleasant, but also stimulates our imagination by creating images at the same synchronized speed with our imagination; We can become astronauts in our own head, constantly exploring new territories. The active imagination can transform all other facades of our lives, we can make the mundane more enjoyable if we apply our imagination to it.
Imagine you can be, do, and have whatever you want. What would that be like? Dose our physical existence gives us that kind of freedom? In a world where everything and everyone deteriorates, nothing is worse than letting our infinite imaginations go to waste. The best way to stimulate our imagination is to synchronize the painting process with our imagination.
