Martin Petrosyan

1936 | Armenia

Martin Petrosyan is a master who has an extremely original decorative-coloring and at the same time graphic-linear thinking. His portraits and landscapes are thematic compositions comprising daily, historical-legendary, fairy-mythological motives which are executed on a cardboard or on a canvas in the technique of oil painting and are distinguished with a vague and dim light, deep and transparent tones and a simplified and stylized drawingPetrosyan freely masters his rich palette. His canvases are distinguished with the profound characterization and the extraordinary imagination.  The landscape in the master’s painting is especially interesting because it serves very often as a background for the thematic paintings.
