I am Andranik Avetisyan. I was born in Gyumri (The Republic of Armenia) on 28 December 1968. I am an Armenian artist, business man, collector of art works. The main subjects of my works are life, man, human relations, space, beginning, what is the art. I am really glad that I am the first man in the world who created a picture from a real spider web. I noticed the spider web in the corner of the window in my studio.Then a great idea came to my mind to create a picture from a spider web.And I began to study the life of the spiders and the structure of their web.After that I began to breed the spiders and to use their webs in order to create the pictures. (Andranik Avetisian (Ado) says: “Spider web, in nature is a picture of energy making a connection among all the objects in the universe“. You can see Аrtist Andranik Avetisyan's Ado works which are made of cobweb only in Gyumri's Art Gallery Cobweb. He is a founder of these cobweb works and the only artist in the world who creates works of art by a natural cobweb. He noticed the spider web in the corner of the window in his studio. Then a great idea came to his mind to create a picture of a natural cobweb. And he began to study the life of the spiders and the structure of their web. After that he began to breed the spiders and to use their webs in order to create the works of art which brought the artist the fame quickly in the world. The cobweb is the weapon of survival for spider and for man the brain carries out this work. Cobweb is the picture of the work of the man’s brain. The main subjects of his works are life, human relations, energy, space, and beginning. In 2017 he took part in International contemporary art exhibition in Cannes, France and won the“ New Talent ” prize. Andranik Avetisian says, (Ado) “Cobweb, in nature is a picture of energy making a connection among all the objects in the universe’’. Artist Ado’s pictures are made of real cobweb.
The cobweb is the weapon for a spider with which he hunts insects for survival and for man the brain carries out this work. There is an interesting similarity here. The work of the neurons in the brain's nervous system is very similar to the cobweb.
Cobweb, in infinity is a picture of energy making a connection among all the objects in the universe.
After every work I enjoyed, I felt pretty happy. True, I do not know how much I have come to the truth because I try to find answers to many difficult questions that are not given to human beings. Anyway, being close to finding the truth seemed to me has always been a great victory.
The role of human existence, to call for life, information which is in the universe energy, in the form of the thought.
