Original art by Van Hovakwww.ArtPal.com/vanhovakart
Thank you for visiting my site.
I am a professional artist painting in oil and acrylic for over thirty years.
Born in 1973 in Yerevan, Armenia, I received degree at the Armenian State Pedagogical University (ASPU) and 8th University in Paris, Department of Arts.
I have participated in a numerous exhibitions in Armenia and abroad, many of my paintings can be found in corporate and private collections in France, England, Germany, Switzerland and the United States.
My paintings mostly represent spiritual being, human souls, philosophy of life, and archetypes.
Beauty, spirituality, perfection and revelations are the source of my artistic conception. Throughout my career, i have been inspired and influenced by other artists, such as Picasso and Chagall. Symbolism and spirituality are two important things in my art.
My method through numerous overlaying materials (oil, mix media) show the true Spirituality of Man and World.
In my gallery you can find original and unique paintings.
