• Armen Atoyan: If you paint only landscapes, your students will not believe you (video)

    Landscapes, portraits, still lifes, drawings and oil paints, brightly colored canvases where life dominates in all aspects…

    Painter Armen Atoyan turns 92 today. Yes, it is difficulty to believe that at his age the artist continues to paint every day and create new things, enjoys every single minute of life, and says that age does not matter; every person has his ‘biological hands.’

    Armen Atoyan was born to a family of art lovers.

    “I painted everything in my life because I gave art lessons. If you paint only landscapes, your students will not believe you. I painted my best picture at the kindergarten and I was awarded for it. I do not remember receiving awards after that first one,” he says.

    Awards are given by ordinary people but it is God who grants gifts to people, dear master!
