An Armenian Painter: Sevada Grigoryan

Sevada Grigoryan:

“As a child the world seems more colorful, and colors seem much brighter. Through the innocent eyes of a child, life resembles a fairy tale, where kindness, peace, and love reign, where beautiful princesses undoubtedly find their knights. In my paintings, I seek to capture that beautiful dreamlike world, both amazing and exciting.

I believe in art evoked by genuine feelings. My paintings are the reflection of my inner world, things that happen around me and the life left behind. Through the years, various memories, events, and impressions go through a process, which I would describe like crystallization, and eventually they pass to another state of existence: my artworks.

I mainly use acrylic paints, as their brighter colors perfectly match my themes. Detailing is a significant part of my style, as it enables me to transfer my love and care to the painting. There are also elements of eastern cultures, primarily Armenian folklore, which I use in my decorations.

One of the central themes of my paintings is family. I liken the harmony in a family to that of nature. Whether it is a hard-working father, a loving mother, or a happy childhood scene, I try to immortalize a piece of that perfect harmony. I whole-heartedly believe that the beauty along with faith will save the world.”
