This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is submitted by Michael Russo, biographer and catalog writer for the artist, Martin Barooshian:

Printer Painter Teacher Innovator

Over 50 years of intense work have lead down a path of mystery, humor, eroticism, lyricism, line, and color, and into the depths of the subconscious mind. The work is intended to invite the viewer to acquire a contemplative spirit and peer into an unpredictable world filled with life-affirming surrealist fantasies and joyous abstract design.

Born in Chelsea, MA in 1929, MB has lived and studied all over the world including New York, Paris, the Middle East, and India.
