Yohannes Artinyan - Art projects


In fact I do not have a “general” art concept. I think there is no sense to make the same things in different situations and context. I react according to place, time and environment. Revising the projects I have realized the last 15 years the only common thing I can find between them is my willing to use as simple as possible means of expressions.

The porfolio of Yohannes Artinyan site

It is not a presentational portfolio. Thus you would hardly find an art work that is shown in its entirety. It is rather my present feeling about the art works I have made.
