Sam Zumian

1953 | Yerevan, Armenia

Sam Zumian was born in 1953. As an artist he builds his own understanding of life and illustrates it through his art. Over ten years he has mastered paintings and black-and-white art. With the enthusiasm, dedication and drive that Sam Zumian has, he is able to make his own creative interpretation of reality. He makes his own findings in life and discoveries his own ideas of law. In his oil paintings, he focuses on claiming of the aesthetics of the unconscious and the laws of nature which lies beneath it. He doesn’t waste time on the plot, instead uses one or two figures for crucial forces. All the art that Sam Zumian has painted, they all share something deviously dreadful, clear and mysterious at the same time.
