Aram Isabekyan
Aram Isabekyan devoted his life and spirit to two nameless Muses: Painting and the Fine Arts Academy. The first guided him throughout his life, the second accompanied him for more than twenty years. The artist's constant quest and analytical thinking aim at self-discovery and new demonstrations of man-nature concept, foretelling the next stops of his creative route in contemporary Armenian painting. 1976 Yerevan Fine Arts and Theatre Institute, Painting Department, diploma 1979 – 2018 State Academy of Fine Arts of Armenia, lecturer 1982 Artists’ Union of Armenia and the UNESCO International Artists Union, member 1994 – up to now Rector of the State Academy of Fine Arts of Armenia 1999 Gold medal by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Armenia 2001 “Movses Khorenatsi” medal on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of independence of the Republic of Armenia 2002 International Academy of the Humanities and Natural Sciences, member 2002 Honoured Art Worker of the Republic of Armenia.
