Varujan Yegan Boghosian (1926 New Britain, Connecticut - September 21, 2020) was an American artist, best known for his sculptures and assemblages. Since 1958 he had held teaching positions at the University of Florida, Cooper Union, Pratt Institute, Yale University, Brown University and Dartmouth College. At Dartmouth, Boghosian was a member of the art faculty from 1968 to 1995. He was awarded an endowed position as the George Frederick Jewett Professor of Art in 1982. Boghosian retired from Dartmouth in 1995 and had since continued his work as a practicing artist up until his death.
His work challenges the viewer to look at common objects in new ways by presenting them in unique contexts. Boghosian takes on universal themes such as love and death, and success and failure, often through the lens of mythology. A master draftsman, watercolorist and sculptor of found objects, he creates works of art that are often thought-provoking or subtly humorous.
