Areg Petrosyan
Areg (1)

Born in 1981 in Yerevan, Armenia.
He’s one of the brightest representatives of the post-Soviet independence era. He is the successor of the ideas and deeds of his famous father; the sculptor Benik Petrosyan who was the founder of Armenian miniature sculpture.
Areg Petrosyan’s artistic life is hugely influenced by his family; his father as his teacher, his mother; Alice Adamyan who’s also a known public figure, and his sister Arev Petrosyan, who’s one of the best contemporary artists-designers in Armenia; as well as his brother Vahagn Hayrapetyan, an internationally known jazz composer and pianist.

Areg is graduated from both the Art College after P. Terlemezyan, Yerevan, Armenia and the Yerevan State Academy of Fine Arts.

In 2006 Areg Petrosyan left to Florence, Italy to train as a restoration specialist at the “Palazzo Spinelli” Institute of Restoration.  Read more >
