Soviet Armenian artists paintings
Akop Tigranovich Akopyan (1923-2013), Honored Artist of the Armenian SSR, born in Alexandria (Egypt). He studied at the Art Academy in Cairo from 1943 to 1947, and in the art studio of Gran Chaumieu in Paris from 1952 to 1954. In 1952 he moved to Yerevan. Author of thematic paintings, landscapes, still lifes. Gazing closely at nature, Akop Tigranovich Akopyan seeks to reproduce it with an almost illusory accuracy. However, his creative method is far from naturalism. Reality with its particular weight, concreteness becomes its peculiar formula, a certain metaphor that emphasizes the stability of the world, the certainty of feelings. “Still Life With Garlic” (1962) is a typical example of strong-willed, vigorous handwriting of the artist. Lived and worked in Yerevan.
