How did you start in Art?
I began to paint when i was 8 years old. Then I began to study in Children Painting Studio. But then I couldn't imagine, i would become a proffesional artist.But an internal voice prompted me , that art will always accompany me. That voice didn't deceive me.
Who is/was your master?
Answering to the question who are my masters, I always answer medieval Armenian miniature artists and their works.
Based on these works I created new branch and called it Modern Miniature.I think that it is a great time to continue the work of our medieval artists involving new items and new styles.
Do you think that training is Important or prefer self-taught?
In early stages of his career each artist must get professional education. It is similiar to the thing, when the child is learning the alphabet, and when he is growing up and becomes a poet or a writter, he uses the knowledge and begins the creation of new artworks.
It is possible to live from Art?
If you give that question to an artist, of course it is not possible. For example, for me art besides of being an opportunity to live,is also a hobby, a way to live, aim of life and a pleasent habit.
The person who is far away from art ,can live without it, but i think the life of such people is meaningless and empty.
Transpiration or inspiration?
While creating an artwork, both transpiration and inspiration are present. When these two things connect with each other, the artist creates new artwork.
Your 3 Favorite Artists Living and Dead

Work of art that you would like to be the Author and Why
Each artist creates its own artworks.I like many works of art, but they have their authors. To speak the truth, I would like to be only the author of my works.
Is there a Price for Art?
Each artist thinks that his art has no price. And if some works are being sold, that doesnt mean they are losing their price.They only change their location and continue to serve the people.
Everything can be art or are there limits?
Of course not everything can be art. But its very difficult to judge what is and what isn't piece of art. Many people give different marks to the artist's works, but they aren't able to make piece of art themselves. I would not be responsible to mark anybody's art. Time will show everything.
Digital Art. Yes or no?
Of course yes.
