Svetlana Bagdasaryan is a PhD in chemistry and worked as a research scientist.
In August 2010, after an accident, she created her first painting. The occurrence totally changed Svetlana's way of perceiving and understanding things. Before, she had held no interest in painting and had no clue as to how to hold a brush; yet from that time on, she was seized by a need to paint. Within days of the accident she painted her first picture and since then numerous skillful artworks are being produced nonstop.Svetlana has already participated in numerous exhibitions worldwide. Her patrons include collectors from the U.S. as well as Western and Eastern Europe.
"My paintings come from all that inspires me: sparkling shadows in a glass of water, burst of bright flowers on a rainy day, a playful look, nice movements in a beautiful dance.
I believe it is possible to find originality in any situation, and I put all my imagination and efforts to present this in my works.
Among all forms of art, visual art strikes me with its efficacy and poignancy: while a novelist takes hundreds of pages to express an idea, a visual artist can present the whole story right here right now. This is what I endeavor in my artworks: to take a flat canvas and erect upon it a complex story or concept."
