Artist’s Story

During his school days, Vahan was a difficult and rebellious pupil, the only classes where his behavior was satisfying was in painting classes / The shapes Vahan drew might seem weird and ambiguous to others, but for him they were of great importance and held deep significance / He was not an easy character to deal with at the Fine Art Institute either / The only reason his instructors were patient towards his eccentric personality was thanks to his apparent talent /For Vahan art styles are like the four cardinal directions: they all start from the same point / Vahan’s works have been exhibited internationally across France, Germany, Brazil and many more countries/
