LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
Vigen Sayadyan started drawing at the early age of three and drew for hours. Having noticed his passion and dedication towards art, Vigen's parents decided to send him to Zeytun Art School. At the art school, Vigen received his first lessons in fine arts and understood the true value and ideas of artwork. He was taught concepts of composition, design and philosophy of painting.
By the age of ten Vigen had participated in the art competition “Generations Living Together" held by United Nations offices in Yerevan, Armenia and was a contest winner at the United Nations Population Fund in "International Poster Contest". He became silver medalist at the 10th Biennial World Children's Art Exhibition in Kanagawa, Japan. And a year later he was the winner at the 2nd International Art Competition “Visual Artists” in Adler, Russia. Some of Vigen's works were donated to museums in Armenia, Russia and Japan.After finishing school, Vigen entered Yerevan State Academy of Fine Arts which he graduated with a Bachelor in Fine Arts. At the academy he studied classic painting and realistic drawings. Shortly after graduation, Vigen joined Artists Union of Armenia where to this day is an active member.Whilst being a student, Vigen became the Laureate of The Presidential Award and considers this achievement to be the highlight of his artist career. Since 2005, Vigen has been participating in the number of group exhibitions but finds year 2014 as the hardest and most crucial period of his professional life. After painting "The Fear", mysticism became the style in which he now paints.
According to Vigen, mysticism is the form of art that heads over the borders of history towards the center of a human being and helps to get out of chaotic flow of random events and it captures the meaning of reality. This is how Vigen feels about the instability of the world and uncertainty of mankind; these are Vigen's mystic feelings about reality. However, Vigen’s mystic world is full of bright and lush colors that represent faith and hope for mercy and salvation.
