The philosophic axis of his art is that God created everyone and everything perfect and multigrain. That is the reason why Edvard Sasun tries to make a micro world of the real nature. The artist says that you shouldn’t target at copying the nature; a painter should notice and show the hidden but admirable elements of the nature. The main mission of an artist is to help people to see and feel those invisible elements. Usually Edvard Sasun’s works of art make a feeling of being in the nature.

Edvard Sasun is an artist of different genres. Watercolors and graphic works constitute a significant part of his latest period compositions. Especially in his watercolor paintings Edvard Sasun has reached original technical solutions and an absolute mastery of performance due to which it is sometimes difficult to tell his watercolor works from his oil paintings.

The professionalism of the artist is reflected in his portraits that have brought him the fame of a master of psychological portraits.
The canvases with biblical themes are also the expressions of Edvard Sasun’s inner world. “The Last Supper”, “Apocalypse”, “John the Baptist”, “Saint Marie” are the witnesses of his love and faith in God. These works have complicated compositional structures, the themes of which have been used by very talented and famous painters since medieval times. The painter was able to find his own manner of representation of the mentioned subjects.
One of the most important and significant aspects of the painter’s art is that regardless of what his paintings are – compositional, thematic, portraits, still lives or landscapes they all express the absolute harmony of the trinity Man-Nature-Creator. That is the reason why the paintings have direct spiritual influence on the spectators regardless of their intellectual level and become their true friends that never tire or bore.
Finally Edvard Sasun’s art saves people from loneliness, inspires hope and faith to live, communes with the wonders of the Creator and Nature, and fills their lives with beauty.
