Armen Gasparian was born in 1966 in South Armenia, where he studied art in George Ajrapetjana's workshop. He moved to St. Petersburg nearly two decades ago, and continues living and working there today. His works are in private collections worldwide, including Germany, Holland, Finland, North America, and Russia. His romantic images and use of symbolism convey nature with delicate lyricism. While the artist experimented with a bright palette in his earlier works, his later pieces are muted and convey a sense of calm and tranquility. The refined quality of these pieces is characteristic of the northern school of art. Gasparian has developed his own artistic language, combining the traditions of classical art and the new plastic form.
