Arvin Kocharian
The Armenian born artist started his practice in photography at the age of 14 with his dad’s Canon camera, shooting nature at first and then at the age of 19 choosing as motifs the dark moods of life. In 2009 he inaugurated his collection MYSTICUS™, a mix of graphic design and photography with a dark photographic approach, capturing the mystic, melancholic and emotional angles of human spirit. 2005 Foundation of the company Arvin Kocharian Productions 2008 Yerevan State Academy of Fine Arts, Graphic Design Department, diploma 2017 35 Awards 3rd International Annual Photo Award 2017, 3rd Award Staged Photo Series Selected Solo Exhibitions 2008 Photographic Design, Yerevan Chamber Theater, Yerevan, Armenia 2015 MYSTICUS™ Collection, The Loft, Yerevan; MYSTICUS™ Collection, NPAK Gallery, Yerevan, Armenia; MYSTICUS™ Collection, Theater Galerie, Berlin, Germany 2016 MYSTICUS™ Collection, Armenian Arts Gallery, Los Angeles, USA Selected Group Exhibitions 2015 MYSTICUS™ Collection, Art in Fall, New York, USA 2017 MYSTICUS™ Collection, Art in Fall, New York, USA
