Arthur Hovhannisyan
Examining Arthur Hovhannisyan's artworks one can step by step reveal certain interesting regularities: the heritage of the past becomes more significant, when it acts as living and sustainable heritage and in which the cordiality towards the painter’s art is clearly outlined. Like any system of great vitality, the language of his painting has its traits of heredity, changeability, stability and mobility, by which it plays the communicative role.
