Samvel Marutyan was born in Kirovakan, Armenia in 1959. His body of work evokes his ancestry — from his drawings of the horrors of the genocide to the symbolic abstractions of the countryside he explored as a child. He is a member of the International Federation of Artists and the Artists Union of Armenia since 1988, Samvel Marutyan is equally skilled in oils on canvas, acrylics on paper and ink drawings.
His paintings are always full of “assured color and expression with complete mastery of brush and palette knife.”He has had several one-man exhibitions all over the world, most notably in Russia, Poland, Switzerland, Germany, Cyprus, Syria and, of course, Armenia and the United States. His Works are in private
collections and museums throughout the world.
His paintings reveal his love of people, nature and God. They express an entire range of emotions — romantic, brooding, thoughtful, and inspired. His great faith shows in his portraits of Christ — human and yet so obviously the divine savior of mankind.
His art is powerful and timeless. The works illustrate his mood, character and colorful inner world. There is diversity in his collection. Truly, they are so original that it is unlikely any art lover will ever mistake his work for anyone else’s.
