about THE ARTIST
Haykuhi Khachatryan is a contemporary fine art painter who lives and works in Dilijan, Armenia. Her interest in painting dates back to her early years of childhood when she was deeply obsessed with the vibrant spirit and mystery of the Armenian nature. Over time the imaginary reflections of those picturesque landscapes - earth, sky, clouds, mountains, water and flowers were brought into life with contrasting and harmonious colors and bold compositions.
Haykuhi Khachatryan is a self-taught painter. In her early artistic period she studied techniques by visiting the art galleries of several well-established Armenian artists and exploring the rich literature on art. Throughout her career she tried to compose in a very broad mixture of styles and mediums but later on being inspired by the tremendous works of impressionist painters - Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Edouard Manet, Alfred Sisley, Camille Pissarro, Paul Gauguin, Auguste Renoir, Paul Cezanne etc. - she was enchanted by this style. Indeed, the acquaintance with the exhibitions of worldwide famed museums (e. g. Orsay, Louvre, Tretyakov Gallery, Van Gogh Museum etc.) contributed to the formation of her unique way of thinking, too.
The artist brings an extensive mastery of color theory, innate sense of rhythm and compositional elements to her paintings. As she explains, “I believe that each painting contains a massive amount of energy and empowerment. As such, I mainly use bright and vivid colors to convey a sense of immediacy, harmony and optimism to people”.
Haykuhi Khachatryan’s artworks can be found in numerous private art collections throughout the U. S., Canada, Mexico, Austria, Spain, Sweden, Italy, France, Russia, Australia, Bahrain and other corners of the world. Her works have been exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in Armenia and Europe.
