A Drawing by Samvel Saghatelian. (right) Samvel with his wife Zara Zeitountsian
His works are mostly Surrealist and GROTESQUE but they makes you smile or laugh...at his absurdities
Samvel Saghatelian (aka Sam Saga.) graduated from Yerevan(Armenia) Institute of Architecture and pursued a career in architecture. in 1988, at the brink of the collapse of the USSR and Armenia's independence; he started his journey as an artist.
In 2001 Saghatelian was one of the artists representing the Armenian pavilion in the 49th Venice Biennale in Italy (Plateau of Humankind).
In 2002 he was awarded a Fellowship for Arts Link (New York) and Vermont Studio Center in Vermont, the one of the largest international artists and writers Residency Program in the United States and had his first solo exhibition there.
Very much attracted to the US art scene, Saghatelian moved to Los Angeles, CA where he now currently lives and works. His artistic expression is not limited to his art. Saghatelian has been the chief curator at Black Maria Gallery for three years.
Saghatelian describes the contemporary Los Angeles art scene as ?stretched, cute, unpredictable, monster, dark, crazy, communicative? something [is] happening here and it?s inspiring me?.?
