Bright and saturated colors, a peculiar interpretation of reality, and clear designations of objects – all this characterizes the Vav Hakobian’s work. Looking at the art of the painter one can say that the artist explains reality through personal perception, turning gray reality into more vivid and abstract forms. He expresses the reality by his own perception and interpretation of life.His highly original style utilized bright colors to portray imaginary creatures and people which are caught in statuesque poses. Vav explored mystical and fantastic themes in his paintings. His paintings stress the poetics of color in their delicate harmonies of hues, while his subject matter was highly personal in its mythical and dreamlike figures.The forms tend to be outlined in flowing, heavy contours and have few details: the brushstrokes are laid on in large, thin, luminous, carefully calculated patches, shadows are practically eliminated and the depicted space is either extremely shallow or warped into a flatness that parallels the plane of the canvas and defies academic rules for perspective and foreshortening.
