Armenian artist Rudolf Khachatryan
Born in 1937, Rudolf Khachatryan started painting at the age of three. He lived in Paris for a long period. Then he returned to Armenia, his homeland. Creating paintings and beautiful portraits, Rudolf Khachatryan (Roudolf Khachatrian) used various media. In particular, white or colored paper, pencil, light-brown liquid ink (sepia), and red chalk pencil (sanguine), pen and brush. In 1971 Rudolf Khachatryan moved to Moscow. He created portraits and still lifes, filled with black or monochromatic ocher pencil, developing his own distinctive artistic style. Roudolf Khachatrian is a very unique artist. His artworks have been exhibited in different international exhibitions, stored in museums and private collections.

Still life painting by Armenian artist Rudolf Khachatryan

One night, when little Roudolf was laying on the bed and thinking, a bright light shine appeared just in front of him. The boy saw a kind face outlined in this light, he closed his eyes again. When he reopened his eyes, the face was still there. The boy was so afraid, that he cried. In the morning the boy said to his mum that he saw God. Many years later, he remembered: “For the first time we cry, when we are born. For the second time I was crying, when I was born as a human”.
