Lajikian’s portrait and figure paintings are simply powerful to observe. He establishes a sense of timelessness with every stroke of the brush — an achievement that is no doubt elevated by his bold practice as a painter.

The Eyes: it’s all about the eyes, that’s how you can tell a true master. You look at his portraits and see the life in them, breathing right at you. He is a genius at creating art!


Katt Williams, Comedian, Actor



Samvel Lajikian is an artist of unique talent. When you look at his paintings you feel the breath of the Armenian nation, the East. The exhibited artworks have a wonderful composition, are full of the transparency of light and shadow.
