Artezaar.com Featured Artist: Jivan Hovhannisyan
A master who is extremely creative, talented and incredibly passionate. A phenomenal teacher. Just a few words to describe our Featured Artist Jivan Hovhannisyan.
Jivan’s journey into art began at the tender age of 2 years old when his family noticed that he would gravitate towards pencils, crayons, or virtually anything that he could use to create. This passion would only continue to grow stronger and bolder. From a young age, Jivan’s path in life was clear; he would become an artist.
Eager to pursue a career in the arts, Jivan took on formal art studies which gave him the opportunity to really hone and master his skills. He studied Art in Sisian and then graduated from the Panos Terlemzyan Fine Arts High College in Yerevan in 1997. Jivan has been sharing his stunning creations with the world ever since, having exhibited his art at more than 40 major exhibitions in over a dozen countries.
As Jivan continued to grow and mature as an artist, he decided that he wanted to do more than gracing the world with his stunning creations. He decided that he wanted to share his passion for art with other people so that they could experience the same joy he did while engaging in the creative process. And so Jivan began to teach and mentor fellow artists.
For Jivan, teaching or instructing someone in the arts is not only about guiding them on matters of technique, but also about continuing to stoke the artistic flame within them to keep them inspired and excited to create. Since moving to Dubai, Jivan has been teaching pencil drawing, freehand drawing, and oil painting to advanced-level students first at the Dubai Community Theatre and Arts Centre (DUCTAC), and now at Reem Gallery Dubai.
Indeed, to say that Jivan’s artistic journey is impressive would be a massive understatement. With over 33 years of experience as an artist, Jivan has produced unique masterpieces of work, using a variety of mediums including oil, watercolors and pastels while also specializing in needlework and computer designs. Each piece of his is a keepsake, an investment that every art lover or art buyer can be proud of.
He has been a member of the “Center of Armenian Artists” since 1990 and has been a representative for the “Foundation for the Armenian Fine Arts” in the UAE since 2016. These are just a few of his many admirable accomplishments in the art world!
