Born in a cradle on Mount Ararat, Martiros Manoukian climbed to the top of Olympus art in less than half a century. It was August 5, 1947 in Yerevan, the Armenian capital. According to the artist, he destined to be an artist. “God gives us something at birth, and that’s it. I always believed in myself”. Artistic ability allowed him to enter the Academy of Fine Arts right after graduation from high school. As a child, Martiros admired classical painting, and liked to visit the galleries and museums. There, he looked for quiet contemplation of paintings of great artists.

The artists statement: “My style is life, and I like life very much”. Some works by Martiros reflect something of antiquity in his homeland, as well as reflections of centuries-old icons of Russian Orthodoxy. Others express contemporary images. One way or another, his art celebrates love of life and freedom.

“Great art history, great masters were my teachers. I was stunned by their ability to solve problems, I admire how they were feeling, what was the basis for the great art. I have many favorite artists, I see them all as a great bouquet, the absence of at least a single flower of which would be a big loss. I would like to have the light of Girodet, line of Ingre, courage of Picasso and Chagall color. Actually, I do not know what I feel when I draw, I just draw my spirit feeling that it is impossible to catch with eyes”.
