Paravon Mirzoyan
The key features that characterize Paravon Mirzoyan’s creative legacy are his peculiar manner of writing and his life philosophy as of a powerful Master of brush, his own-established culture of colours and plastic art, his subtle aesthetic taste and sense of architectonics. A prominent painter, a magnificent portraitist and composer, when it concerns the way of creation the harmony of artistic images and the surrounding world, and the nature fascinating us with a gleaming magic of his palette of colours, today we are also attracted by the author's mystery. His artworks are filled with the magic of uncertainty, at times the picturesque intonation sounds on undertints, and probably on a crescendo.
