Vahan Rumelyan Armenian, b. 1963


For Rumelyan, art is imperative to history, and now more than ever society exerts extraordinary pressure on artists in cultural, political, social, and many other forms. The artist expresses these factors abstractly in their works through formal means: lines, colors, content, and technique. Rumelyan adds subtle use of color palettes and a delicate handling of paint which is seen persistently throughout their works.


Vahan Rumelyan’s paintings captures the soul. A process of seeing without the need for any explanation. He makes the colors breathe and his paintings, similar to sounds, fly into space and a symphony of color is created. The artist uses his medium to represent extreme states of emotion. Their pictures are spontaneous, yet are the result of a refined intuitive activity, finely tuned by meditation and reflection.
