Sam Grigorian  Fine Artist
The urge to constantly see something new and make something visible what one would otherwise only feel, is the thing that drives me to make art.  Sam Grigorian’s art includes a wide range of large-and small-scale works on paper, collages and décollages. The artist works with various types of old paper (music paper, found objects ...), thus pointing back to the partially-buried history of cultural development, with significant roots in Armenia and refers to it. In an individually developed technical method he gives the layers in different papers, but also the other "objets-trouvé" materials their own importance and symbolic depths.
His creative way of working is minimal and reduced to geometric principles of order and makes the integration into the abstractions of the presence of both the associated loss, and the gain significantly, with a specific repertoire of forms and restrained colors. Klaus Zeller, Photographer

Arthur Sarkissian  Fine Artist
“The mediated photographic imagery Sarkissian appropriates, after all, is no less imbued with his passion than are his vigorous, often volcanic passages of the abstract brushwork. It is the passion of Sarkissian’s curiosity, his embrace of the world that prompts him to introduce photographic imagery into his paintings… We even see its textures and practices, as well as philosophical positions, reflected in the work of such disparate predecessors as Warhol, Cornell, Miro, Malevich, and, of course Picasso. Among other things, Sarkissian demonstrates that the “collage aesthetic” – the simultaneously disjunctive and conjunctive qualities that uniquely define modern composition – remains one of the most significant and enduring legacies of 20th century art.” -Peter Frank, Los Angeles, June 2006.

Artists Satatement: Speedy development and adaptation of new technologies allows art to take on many various new forms; art allows science to tackle the issues it faces in new and creative ways. Art has also been seen to benefit from applying formulae and scientific methods to the creation process, the science helping many to understand how art and the empirical world can relate to each other. Art creates an irrational space where the human being initially experiences an emotional reaction. If it is possible to somehow quantify these emotional reactions through understanding formulaically precise art, then we are able to better understand our emotional selves. The absolute is impossible to describe, but it is possible to create an image of it. Consequently, if the symbol can be interpreted then the image and the space of the artwork in question can only be felt. It is a closed system of inwardly complete infinite spheres, which is manifested in the artwork by revelation, once and forever. Each piece of my work has a unique name, which reflects the unexpected nature of its creation. The ''name-code'', consisting of numbers and letters, reconfirms the fact that each piece is a unique entity.

  1. new period of abstract works
    new period of abstract works
    Since beginning of the second millennium I turned to abstraction of textures and masonry-works of olden structures, semi-visible obscured arabesques and architectural forms. Same concept of repeated details forming an abstract expanse, which are present in my early period of abstract works are present here as well. These compositions are mystical and convey an aura of stand-still quiet and feeling of awe and reverence.

Arman Grigoryan is the originator of Armenian pop art that began the alternative art movement in the perestroika years in the Soviet Union. To show his contempt for the Soviet government and to reveal its hypocrisy, Grigoryan developed a punk/pop aesthetic that ridicules the social realism that was the only style accepted by the state. His work was exemplary of cultural changes in the “Velvet Revolution”. Grigoryan’s bright colors and powerful images mimic the advertising world of the West, that seduced with promises of new consumer goods and a better life, but remained in the realm of fantasy after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Nana's art of recent years is highly saturated by SURREAL attitude mixed with her fascination by GOTHIC spirit and focused on visualization of DARK & MYSTERIOUS Dreams. Provocative, EROTIC allusions, sensual, accentuated color approaches are indispensable methods of expression in Nana's paintings. Little witches, cupboards, bats, reptiles, semi-cybernetic creatures and insects that reveal surprising contents, confident women or skeletons with a rich history are her favorite characters.  1993 graduated from P. Terlemezian College of Art, and in 1999 graduated from the Painting Department of the Academy of Fine Arts of Yerevan.

David Kareyan  Fine Artist
DAVID KAREYAN was born in 1973. Studied in Panos Terlemezyan Art College, later in Yerevan Fine Art Academy (1990–1996).
In 1996 he co-founded “Act” group. In their works of 1993–2000 those artists used to emphasize new media, observing the art as a process for political activism, experimentation of cultural amortization and expanding of bounds of art. In exhibitions, held in 1993–2000 in the Center of Contemporary Innovative Art, he emphasized analyzes of post-Soviet social and political cataclysms and overcoming the atmosphere of fear, trying to exit from the cultural isolation and total social control.
New Locality  project is intended to expose the identity of contemporary man in the era of cultural globalization, technological revolution and biological distortion. It consists of 23 independent canvasses, which are also complementary of each other.
