Arthur Sarkisyan

Arthur Sarkisyan was born in 1960 in Gyumri, Armenia. He attended the School of Fine Arts in his native city, followed by the Armenian Pedagogical University (Drawing Department) in 1989. He lives and works in Yerevan, Armenia.

Sarkisyan works in abstract art as a statement of post-soviet freedom of expression. His canvases combine painting and silkscreen printing, incorporating text, photographs, signs, architectural images and extracts from other paintings, fusing oil paint with found ephemera.

Closed Session (2007), mixed media installation

Mind Games (2003), oil on canvas

Game in the Museum (2005), mixed media on canvas
