Biography
 
        Vakhtang was born in 1968 in Armenia. He graduated from the Yerevan Fine Art and Theatrical Academy. Vakhtang takes his inspiration from the serenity of the late Italian Gothic art and Renaissance painting, which reflect literary myths exalting the intelligence and perfection of man and the ideals of pure beauty, both platonic and humanistic. Vakhtang’s study of the Renaissance masters influenced the creation of his warm and lyrical vision of humanity. In this blending of eras, Vakhtang’s work seems to transcend time itself. Similarly, his style harmonizes the ennoblement of the Renaissance with an Eastern European intensity and grace. As a true fine artist, Vakhtang’s works are created with an independent aesthetic: an emotional and intellectual expression of his soul. The artist has also developed his own process of applying multiple layers of oil to achieve a special texture and depth of colors.
 
        Vakhtang’s paintings are in private collections, exhibitions, and museums throughout the world including the Museum of Modern Art in Armenia, the Modern Art Museum of Beirut, and the Armenian Library, and Museum of America in Watertown, Massachusetts. 
 
        His father was an accomplished violinist and his mother a successful musicologist. But Vakhtang has been able to separate himself from the influence of the masters to create his own motif. In his latest works, Vakhtag is able to archive a subtle distribution of light and shadow in which figures and subject matter are portrayed in an atmosphere of intense richness and clarity. His work can be interpreted on many levels as his approach brings different epochs together, often a Renaissance setting with figures whose expressions or attire seem to belong to another time.
