ARSENE CHABANIAN

Arsen Chabanian

Review

   The real tutor of Arsene Chabanian was the nature, especially seashore regions, where he created numerous studies and paintings, which are exhibited in different galleries. He became a professional painter, acquiring good knowledge of art and developing at the same time his individual orientation. He equally worked in diverse genres: landscape, genre scenes, still-life and portrait. Being still a student, Chabanian was also interested in graphics and created a number of impressing works in the genre of eau-forte.

   The painter was impressed by the natural God-made beauty of fields and mountains, rivers and seas. Chabanian didn’t like the atmosphere of atelier. The open air, nature and especially the sea had a magic attraction for him…These paintings immediately created a great interest and the French press began to speak about the ”painter of light and sea”.
