Eduard Kharazyan is one of the leading figures in Armenian painting of 1960’s. His compositions are transforming reality into abstraction. Allegory, grotesque, associative thinking and hidden symbols are his favorite method of creating complicated multi-meaning images. His art is a unique synthesis of national motives and modern art, in which abstract expressionism combines with medieval miniature art. “There was me, an Armenian. Then there was Art” – he says.Graduated from State Academy of Fine Arts of Armenia in 2009. Member of Artists’ Union of Armenia since 2010.
The real and the imaginary are intertwined in Ararat Minasyan’s art. He dedicates himself to a search for answers, which lie in the unimportant things – his paintings transform the common into the uncommon. His surreal and philosophical works are full of contrasts – strange, sometimes worrying subjects combined with warm, rich color and subtle feeling of nostalgia.
