Statement

"In every project of Mikayel Ohanjanyan's plastic elaboration, we always find the attempt to embody ineffability. His sculpture involves and activates opposites: strict exactness vs. shadowy forms, in a very transparent spaciousness, where substance shades off in a light without boundary lines, where invisible shows itself in real things, which reveal invisible changing again just in the moment of its becoming perceptible.”

Toni Toniato

Art Historian and Critic

 

 

Born in Yerevan / Armenia in 1976, attended the High School for Fine Arts from 1991 to 2001 and then the Academy of Fine Arts. In 2001 he moved to Italy, enrolling at the Academy of Fine Arts of Florence, where he lives and works since then.
