Born in 1967,in Yerevan,Armenia.In 1984-1986 studied at the miniature department of the Arts College.In 1990-1993 studied at the Academic Arts University(CAAU).The artist created a new branch,which can be considered as a modern miniature painting,that is a new page in the modern armenian art.There are different series,dedicated to religious,patriotic and other themes.The miniature works of Armen Daneghyan belong to the end of the 20-th century and are a genious expression of our magnificent Miniature of the Middle Ages.The unique art of Armen Daneghyan actually has its deep roofs in Modern Miniature,the basic field of the medieval arts and essentially is Modern Miniature.
Having got appropriate education in his specialization the artist first of all has mastered the technique of Miniature,which is one of the main demands of the Miniature of the Middle Ages,and then he tried to work on different substances mainly on wood.After a period of strivings he created his main works in the style of Miniature.Namely these we call Modern Miniature a relatively new field in Armenian modern fine arts where Armen displays not only his professional principles and mastership but also religious and art rich reserve.
The artist represents the Christian traditional items in modern style and gives them original color and imaginary solution.
This attitude is very important for our art,one of the main principles of which is the comparison between the traditional and the modern.One must appreciate also the devotion and inspiration of the artist towards his works.He seems to have inherited not only the vocation of our medieval artists but also their talent and self-devotion to the work.

Answering to the question who are my teachers I always say - medieval Armenian miniature artists and their works.
Based on these works I created new branch and called it Modern Miniature.I think that it is a great time to continue the work of our medieval artists involving new items and new styles.
Based on the past, let's create new items and move on.
