Tatev Tatoyan, Abgar Khachatryan
The Armenian art market experiences hard times, while artists have to promote their works by themselves.

Unfortunately, a possibility to display their works in different galleries doesn’t provide painters with a possibility to become known because of the poor public awareness.

Arax Sargsyan:

Promising graphic artist on pictures born from subconscious

Arax Sargsyan
The greatest masters of surrealism never missed an opportunity to cite their own unconscious as an inspiration for their work. The real, conscious experience, inspired by a particular source, always poses a risk of copying others' works, with only the subconscious perception capable of making a creation unique. Colors, shades and lines whose gravitational force is felt even at the level of instincts: artist Arax Sargsyan is well aware of the art of revealing the entire spectrum of emotions of the human subconscious. Her works are flexible, lush and panoramic, even when the author uses graphics both as a basic tool and as a means of expression.
