GOR AVETISYAN

Born in Armenia, Yerevan in 1963
1978 > 82 Graduated from the Phanos Terlemezyan High Art School
1982 > 90 Graduated from State Institute of Fine Arts, Yerevan
1990 Scholarship at the Alanus High school of Fine Arts and Music – Alfter, Germany

1990 Invitation for studium at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts – Gent, Belgium

Since the beginning of his career Gor was fascinated by the traditional Armenian carpet making techniques and traditional craftsmen works.

So these, as well as the dramatic sense for form and colours presented by M. Saryan, the most known Armenian landscape painter, influenced and transformed his expression of art – filling it with of sun and energy.

Apparent in Gor Avetisyan’s work is the hand of the sculptor, in the sense that it is possible to discern in each of his canvases the spirit of the game; a dialogue, a balance between emptiness and plenitude, matter and nothingness.

Personal experience and even the history regain imagery in his paintings – through the application of old family photos, extracts from letters, former paperwork and objects – at the same time showing the sign of an irreversible loss of real sense of living experienced by the modern man.
Dialogue… Silence… History… Love… Memories… Happiness… Games… Dynamism…
… and the constant search of understanding – these and more you can find in Gor Avetisyan’s impressive work.
